School board considering closing Historic Old Central

DULUTH, MN -- The future of the Historic Old Central school building in downtown Duluth is up in the air.

The Duluth School Board has scheduled a public hearing to discuss the closure of the building.

It's another step in the long history of trying to figure out what to do with the building.

Part of the reason they're considering closing it is because the district is having trouble trying to sell it and the building is expensive to maintain.

The building has been on the market since the beginning of the year.

Duluth's Superintendant, John Magas, says they want the public to be aware of what they're doing with the building.

"It's required when we close a school building to have a public hearing. And I think it's really important for us to be transparent about the whole process, be open with people, listen to the community. This is a very important building to Duluth," said Magas.

The public hearing is set for October 6th at 6 p.m inside Historic Old Central.

The meeting will be held in person.
