Approval of the New York Power Authority will be sought for the planned high school on a city-owned 75-acre site just east of Hyde Park.
"It would be wise to get it," said Michael A. Gold, school district lawyer, after receiving a letter from Robert P. Merino, the city's chief lawyer, saying the authority's go-ahead was needed for the school project.
The site, bounded by Porter, Packard and New roads and Hyde Park, is crossed by the authority's underground conduits and was ceded to city for recreational and park purposes and the authority has reversionary clauses, according to
Gold said he and Merino would probably make a joint request to the authority for its approval.
