Voters also approved Tempe Union’s Special Election Question, giving the Governing Board authorization to sell, lease or exchange two District-owned undeveloped land parcels within its boundaries. The District has no fully developed proposals at this time, but the approval allows the Governing Board to consider options and make decisions regarding the property if it was deemed to be advantageous to the District and its patrons.
