Joyce Mink, member of Cave Spring’s City Council, is pleased with feedback from the public concerning the future of the former Cave Spring Elementary School.
The school closed upon the conclusion of the 2021-22 school year. The city subsequently bought the property for $40,000.
A Town Hall meeting was held on Tuesday evening about possibilities for the future of the former CSES. Mink says that some attendees suggested that the property be used as a community center, a space for childrens’ activities, or as studio for filmmakers, or sold for development as a retail outlet.
A decision must be made about the future of the property within the next few months, says Mink.
Cave Spring’s City Council will have the final say as to how the property will be used, attests Mink, who adds that members remain open to citizen input.
Concerned citizens may continue to provide input as the future of the former CSES to any member of the Cave Spring City Council, states Mink, who may be reached via email at [email protected].
