On Monday, the Adrian Public Schools Board of Education heard a report from the Superintendent, Bob Behnke, that showed the future of the school is grim, after the redevelopment project for the former the Elementary School property on Cross Street in Adrian fell through last month, according to lenconnect.com
Apparently, The developer was planning to convert the school into an affordable senior living complex, but that didn't receive the state grant funding neccesary for the project to move forward. Superintendant Behnke realizes the building needs to be renovated if purchased and intended to be used, stating: "It’s an old building and it needs to be brought up to code. It’s not a ‘come-in-and-occupy’ building.It would take about $5 million just to bring it up to code"
