The Homer Parks and Recreation Commission recommended that the old Homer Intermediate School — now known as the Homer Educational and Recreational Complex — not be leased beyond the fall of 2001 to the Kachemak Bay Campus. That would give the college time to find a new site for the west campus. The Parks and Recreation Commission also recommended working with user groups to find funding for renovating the building as well as form a task force to evaluate the expenses of operating the gymnasium.
