An Update on the Historic Lichtenwalter Schoolhouse
At the April 25, 2017 City Council committee meeting, Sarah Haring, community development coordinator with the City of Green, presented the findings and recommendation from the Lichtenwalter Schoolhouse Committee. Their recommendation to the mayor was to rebuild the Lichtenwalter Schoolhouse with flexible interior space that would accommodate both the 3rd grade history classes as well as additional community programming space (Green Historical Society, Girl/Boy Scouts, private events, etc.). They also recommended that the basement space be designated for the exclusive use of the Green Historical Society for archival/work space.
Now that the decision to rebuild has officially been made, the process is just beginning from architectural drawings to final negiotation of insurance settlement before construction documents, contractor bid and so on can even begin. At this time, it is hard to determine when reconstruction could begin, but it is safe to say probably not until sometime in 2018.
