The location is in Palo Alto.
Also, Steve, I think your comment is a little short-sighted:
a) acquiring property for public schools in a community with a growing student population and crowded schools is hardly a "party"
b) There's not enough detail in this article for us to know how much of that $200M is slated to be spent as they continue remodeling the schools, probably most; just because it hasn't been spent yet doesn't mean the money has not been allocated
c) The bond measure language may well have included the provision for future land acquisition (you'd have to find the ballot measure language to find out for sure), in which case it would be an entirely appropriate use of the funds.
So, if you want to accuse them of stealing from the taxpayers and mismangaging funds, first find out what the Palo Alto voters approved.
