Suddenly the City is all over Central High School

A bitter emailer comments on the City’s plans for the Duluth School District’s excess property:

The city stood quietly by when the school district was changing the face of Duluth forever with the rationalization that they were two separate entities and so could not intrude on each other, so why now is the city taking the lead to find a use for Central?

Did they perhaps have hopes for some commercial use of this property and so did nothing when citizens asked for their help?

Are they taking a page from the JCI/Dixon play book and holding community meetings so they can turn around and say “you had your chance for input”?
