LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - The La Crosse school district is trying to figure out what to do with one of its oldest buildings.
The school board met Monday night to discuss plans for selling the old Roosevelt Elementary School. The district has already received a couple of offers, but one company is sticking out as a front runner. Superintendent Randy Nelson hopes the district sells the building to Gorman & Company out of Oregon, Wisconsin.
He says one of the main reasons is because the company wants to work with the neighborhood to develop the building.
"Based on the feedback we received from the Roosevelt neighbors, I think on February 10 this past year, they really wanted to have a lot of flexibility. They want to have some input on really what happens in that neighborhood," said superintendent Randy Nelson.
The board says because each proposal they have received is contingent on funding, the building could sit vacant for almost 18 months before a company officially closes on the building.
