I would much rather the school district buy this land. I worked for the owner of Summerhill Homes for 23 years and this is just another project for them. I remember when they bought part of the Olsen land in Sunnyvale. What use to be just orchards and a great fruit stand is now a bunch of ugly houses. My daughter went to Penisula Day Care center for 8 years and it was wonderful. Summerhill can build houses anywhere. The school district is a much better use.
