MILLVILLE — Make room for a new high school.

Alfalfa fields, on State Road 165 in between 2450 South and 2700 South, was approved for purchase by the Cache County Board of Education Thursday for the construction of the school. The property, which spans 48 acres, will cost about $830,000, and the school board will purchase it using money left over from a 2004 bond that set aside money specifically for the purchasing of property.

The decision was made in a unanimous vote;  the only concern raised was potential negative effects the school might have on the community.  

The board also approved the creation of the Outdoor/Mountain Bike Club, to be held after schools at Cache High.

“We’re excited about the progress we’re making,” Randy Bennion said, standing before the board with the proposal.

Mike Thomas, a science teacher, will head the club, with two faculty members present at activities. Cross country skis and snow shoes will also used for the winter to provide another aspect to the club. Helmets have been purchased and Bennion said students must wear and fasten helmets properly before being permitted to ride.

Other items on the Board’s agenda included recognizing the individual and team efforts of the state champion Mountain Crest cross country team and the state champion Sky View girls’ volleyball team.
