LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – Tomorrow morning closing papers will be signed as part of the sale of CW Otto Middle School.
The Lansing School District (LSD) will complete the closing document with the non-profit organization known as the Advancement Corporation (Metro Lansing Poor People’s Campaign).
The signing is scheduled for tomorrow, Friday, October 29, 2021 in the board meeting room of the Lansing School District Administration Building at 10:30 a.m.
The district agreed to sell the building for $ 1 to allow the Poor’s Campaign to reallocate the school for community use.
This signing event continues the sale process accepted by the Lansing School District Board of Education in June 2021.
According to a statement from LSD, the fence will be in receivership, meaning that the transfer of title to the countryside of the poor is conditional on the city of Lansing approving a land division of the current Otto plot after the closing.
“This is a big step forward for the Lansing School District,” said Superintendent Ben Shuldiner. “The neighborhood has been marketing the Otto building and property for many years, and we are happy to see a local group moving forward with plans to use the building for common community purposes in the future. ”
Pastor DJ Knox, member of the president of the Metro Lansing Poor People’s Campaign, will join Shuldiner at the closing.
