New plan for Strawberry seminary site, new leadership at rec

LOOKING BACK AT 2019: STRAWBERRY — Discussion of the proposed development at the former seminary site in Strawberry cooled off considerably in 2019 — until December, when the owner of the property unveiled a revamped plan sure to spark conversation throughout this year: the prospect of a University of Oxford affiliate as the anchor tenant. Meanwhile, the Strawberry Recreation District spent the better part of 2019 grappling with internal challenges that complicated its attempt to define a long-term vision for the agency’s future. The district terminated the contract of its general manager and was subsequently hit with a pending wrongful-termination lawsuit; conducted an unsuccessful search for a replacement leader before pushing the hiring process into 2020; and struggled to fill an unexpected board vacancy.
