Ferndale School District officials said this week they had been approached by City of Ferndale officials regarding the possibility of the city using the ‘Old Main’ section of the Ferndale High School campus as a city hall building.
It is currently destined to be replaced by a new high school structure after which it would either be demolished or repurposed in some way such as what the city is proposing.
The statement from the district:
We entered into a conversation initiated by the City about the possibility of repurposing Old Main as a new City Hall. This idea is still in very early stages. The City Council has to decide whether it is even feasible to renovate the building for this alternative purpose before any further discussion with the District can take place.
The ‘Old Main’ section of the Ferndale High School campus was built in 1936. New plumbing, heating, electrical systems, floors surfaces and wall coverings were installed in 1986 as part of a modernization project.
