The city has taken ownership of this beautiful school building with so much potential on 1.346 acres.   The school building is located on a major corridor, amongst a residential neighborhood, and within a very short walking distance of all of the amenities downtown.  We are seeking a partner to develop a residential or mixed-use concept.   A Brownfield Plan is currently active and the city has identified approximately $300,00 in Brownfield eligible activities on the site, along with eligibility for major grant opportunities through MEDC.
