The Downtown Development Authority discussed the acquisition and renovation of the old Adams Street school at its Jan. 19 meeting. Plans include repairing the building's roof, windows, floors and restrooms to make it a community arts center.
Ok, here's teh story from just a few days ago. They said the building is too bad to repair, now they want to?http://www.pikecountygeorgia.com/archives/995-BOE-transfers-old-Adams-St.-school-to-DDA.html
I'm sure there were reasons. Most of them centered around the School Board wanting to build a new building rather than fix what they had. If I had to guess they probably promised to build the new building and then fix the old one when everyone was out. Then they would roll back the additional taxes to a more appropriate level.
But like most government entities they didn't do anything they promised and built 5 schools within a 1/2 mile of each other creating a huge traffic mess. Forcing people to be bussed from all over the county.
