Camden County Considers Buying Part of School

Camden County officials are considering buying part of a school for developmentally disabled people for open space after the community of Haddonfield’s plan to buy the land fell through earlier this year.

County officials say that if they buy the 13-acre parcel of the Bancroft school, it would become part of the county park system, according to the Courier-Post.

In a close vote in January after a heated campaign, residents Haddonfield voted down a proposal to buy the entire 19.2-acre site for $12.5 million. The plan then was to use it for open space, athletic fields and perhaps some homes in the affluent town near Philadelphia.

Bancroft said then that it would stay in Haddonfield rather than building a more modern facility elsewhere.
