Councilman Jim Graham held a meeting Tuesday on the long-awaited demolition of Bruce Monroe Elementary School on Georgia Avenue. Demolition had been delayed because of asbestos problems, but the Deputy Mayor’s Office reported it will be completely finished by April 30, 2010.
For now, the site will be leveled, and will not see a new school at least for another 3-5 years. However, the Office explained that the space could possibly be used for a tennis and basketball court on the Georgia Avenue side, while the Irving side could be used for a parking lot.
The community seemed to like the idea of constructing a basketball and tennis court, but as for the parking lot…not so much. What do you think? The next meeting is set for Monday March 8th at 7pm with the location to be announced. Councilman Graham and the Deputy Mayor’s Office invites everyone to participate.
