“Where it’s going, we don’t know,” Crocker said. “But the (school district) knows our feelings.”

Ginalski said the alumni association has discussed doing a fundraiser to raise money for the reuse of the clock tower.

“School Board President, Dale Wexell has an idea of taking down the clock piece and the cap (of the clock tower) and creating a monument inside of one of our school buildings, which sound absolutely feasible,” Ginalski said. “I actually like that idea better because of my concerns about the clock tower (monument) being outdoors and the potential damage.”

Jeff Eaton, Arbor president and CEO, said asbestos abatement will begin later this month or early October at the site.

The asbestos abatement work is expected to take about six weeks to complete and then demolition of the site will begin, according to officials. The building is expected to be razed by early 2018.

Arbor plans to sell lots to developers, build market rate homes for sale, and/or sell lots to potential homeowners. For a larger home, and interested buyer/builder is able to purchase and develop adjacent lots.

The approximated cost of a lot is $30,00
