Council discusses possible sale of elementary school to laboratory

Lansing city council members discussed the possible sale of the former Moores Park Elementary School to PSO Laboratory LLC during their meeting Monday, Feb. 10. The council briefly discussed a letter in favor of the sale from Vice President Chong-Anna Canfora on behalf of the Moores Park Neighborhood Organization, and promptly moved the issue to the development and planning division. Moores Park Elementary, located at 316 Moores River Drive, closed in 2009.  PSO Laboratory LLC offered to purchase the property for $260,000, but the district will not proceed until it has been rezoned. Public opinion

President of the Moores Park Neighborhood Organization Paul Johns said that while “it’s hard to get every neighbor to vote,” most of the neighborhood’s citizens who have voiced their opinion support the sale of the school.
