To ensure there is space to expand its operations in the future, New Lenox School District 122 officials agreed May 17 to purchase some land on the village’s south side. 

In a 4-2 vote, the board approved a $1.1 million contract to purchase 40 acres of farmland on Cedar Road. Board members Phil Adair and Michele Degroot Rosenfeld voted it down. 

Superintendent Dr. Peggy Manville wants to make sure people aren’t thinking that we’re purchasing this land to build a building.
