Badger Mountain South site for new Richland school?

RICHLAND, Wash. -- The search for land in Richland to house a new middle school could be over.

A developer with Badger Mountain South told us the school district signed a purchase agreement Wednesday morning for land near the development.

Richland has been on the hunt for land to build a new middle school. It had announced a deadline of Monday to make that happen.

The Richland School Board won't confirm if this land is for a middle school and wouldn't confirm the purchase. It would only say there is a feasibility study being done.

The developer told KEPR the purchase should be closed by late spring.
