A pair of proposed easements with very different purposes could affect activity on a piece of school district-owned property in Castle Rock Township. Farmington School Board members heard information at a Monday night workshop meeting about two separate requests to buy easements on 176-acre property the school district originally bought as a site for the high school that ended up on the west side of the city. One is for a high-voltage power line that would run along the south side of the property. The other is for a conservation easement around a branch of the Vermillion River.
