LANCASTER — The Antelope Valley Schools Transportation Agency will have more room for parking school buses and for employee vehicles.
The agency’s Board of Directors, on Feb. 9, approved the $195,000 purchase of an approximately one-acre parcel of vacant land east of the transit agency’s headquarters on Avenue L-8 and 7th Street West.
“We don’t have enough places to park our buses,” AVSTA CEO Morris Fuselier said Monday. “We have a lot of employees (and) we need places to park. We want a place that’s safe and protects their vehicles.”
The Board will consider at its March 11 meeting, the purchase of an adjacent, one-acre parcel of land for $155,000.
The land will be developed over the next two or three years.
“We’re excited about it,” Fuselier said. “It’s something we need to do.”
