It was a packed room Wednesday night at the Highland Adult Activity Center as residents and the Highland Township Board of Trustees discussed how to save the Highland Middle School gymnasium.
Supervisor Rick Hamill said the township, legally, can't invest taxpayer money into the project because the township won't have ownership of the building. Instead, the township is asking that the community help invest in the project - whether it's helping with landscaping or donating money.
Earlier this month, Huron Valley Schools gave the township a chance to save the gym on the condition that the township finds a way to pay for the electric and water hookups, and the heating and cooling so that the building can stand on its own.
Wednesday, residents voiced their concerns to the township board and also voiced their support.
At the end of the night, the township board passed a unanimous resolution to show the community's support for the project.
