"We still need brains and a heart."
The Haddonfield Board of Education unanimously approved a resolution Thursday supporting negotiations with Bancroft to buy its nearly 19-acre campus adjacent to the borough high school. The question is, if a deal can be struck, what happens next? If the school board writes the next chapter, the land on Kings Highway East will literally be a field of dreams, for high-school sports, school-district expansion and open-space preservation. If the borough writes the next chapter, the field will also include a residential component to ease the tax burden on residents.

The three-member Board of Commissioners said they still want to work with the BOE for public-purchase strategies for the site.
The Haddonfield Board of Commissioners on Tuesday rejected a request from the borough school board to be named developer for the Bancroft site on Kings Highway East. The decision was made in a work-session meeting. No public votes on ordinances or resolutions are held at work sessions but other public policy may be decided. The school board asked to be named the developer for the 18.7-acre site two weeks ago. It was part of a plan it has for purchasing the property, demolishing existing buildings and converting it for school use, athletic fields and open space. Bancroft, a center for people with developmental disabilities and acquired brain injuries, has been located on the site at 425 Kings Highway East for the past 128 years. It's …
