Is there something going on between BBL and Shen? its strange that BBL is donating land that they purchased. It is a business after all. This could be a conflict of interests because if Shen was to expand, BBL could say that they donated land so they want the contract to build. I doubt this will be answered because Shen wouldn’t want to expose such an issue.

A. No. The sale of land was done through a Request for Proposal process. Four proposals were submitted (you can see a summary of each one here), BBL was the highest offer ($2 million) plus they included the offer to donate the land to the town of Clifton Park (not the school district). When the district has a need in the future for building, by law, it has to use a competitive bidding process.
