LYME-OLD LYME — The Lyme Academy of Fine Arts approached the Lyme-Old Lyme school district concerning the possibility of selling a portion of abutting property just north of the main high school and middle school campus.

“I will review the proposal and look for input from the board as to how you would like to proceed. This does not require board action,” said Ian Neviaser, superintendent of Lyme-Old Lyme schools, at Wednesday evening’s board of education meeting.

The board will await a report back from Neviaser after more details about the possible purchase are available. The land is part of Lyme Academy of Fine Arts’ 26.31 acre parcel on the market for $5 million since  October.
