The City of Buffalo will be hosting two public workshops this week to gather input from the public to help determine the best use of the old Clear Creek School building.
The Johnson County School District will be making a decision on what to do with the building in the near future, and the City of Buffalo has first right of refusal, meaning they have the first opportunity to purchase the building from the school district.
Public meetings held in the last couple of years have given the public opportunities to suggest possible uses for the old school building, ranging from a community center to housing the Boys' and Girls' Club, Sheridan College in Johnson County, or both, to a community business incubator or performing arts complex.
These meetings this week are being conducted by Nelson Engineering, who was tasked with running the city's feasibility study for the use of the building.
Although no decision has been made as yet, the City of Buffalo is offering two more opportunities for the public to voice their opinion on their preferred use or uses for the building.
The first public workshop will be Wednesday, May 1st at City Hall beginning at 5:15pm. The second will be Thursday night at the same place and time.
These are not two separate meetings with different information in each, but two opportunities for the public to give their opinion.
