Old elementary school could be history by 2012

Posted by wlpo on September 6, 2011

By the time 2012 arrives, the old Matthiessen School could be no more.  The city will find out in two to three months if they’ll receive a state grant that would cover most of the cost of demolition.

The city council last night gave the go ahead to apply for the CDAP Grant.  Asbestos has already been removed.  Demolition is expected to cost $182,675.

As for what will be done with the land, Mayor Jeff Grove says he would like to see it used for education but says nothing is concrete.
