Avoca Center Community Open House
Wednesday, October 26 at 7:00 p.m.
Avoca Center Gymnasium
3013 Illinois Rd. Wilmette
After years of trying to maintain Avoca Center’s original infrastructure, circa 1957, the Board of Education finds itself at a crossroad. With steam boilers that are well past their useful life and plumbing and electrical systems that struggle to support the needs of our current tenants, the Avoca School Board is faced with an important imminent decision. Do we renovate the facility at a cost of approximately $6.7 million for the purpose of retaining it as a viable rental property or do we sell the building and the parcel of land it sits upon to a developer for the construction of single-family homes?
The Avoca School District is hosting a community open house to share information about the site, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of both options. After the presentation, attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions, provide feedback and tour the facility. For more information visit avoca37.org/avocacenter.
We encourage you to attend!
