Talk About Town: What Should Happen to Highland Middle School?
The Huron Valley School Board is giving Highland Township the option to purchase the property. Patch wants to hear what you think.
It's got a ton of space, it's a part of Highland history and the current home to the Huron Valley Youth Baseball and Softball League. Vacant now for a year, the former home of Highland Middle School has been offered to Highland Township.
The Huron Valley School board voted last week to allow the township to mull over the decision to buy the property until March. After March, the district can entertain outside offers, or decide to demolish the building and sell the land.
One complaint throughout the process has been that Highland residents have, and continue, to feel burdened by the decision of the school district. The township is now home to two closed schools, Highland Middle School and Apollo Elementary.
So Patch wants to know:
What would like to see happen at Highland Middle School? Should the township purchase the building? Should the building be demolished?
