There have been various rumors buzzing around Salemtown about the old Fehr Elementary School building, which currently houses the North Head Start Center as well as the administrative offices and the Community Programs Services of the Metropolitan Action Commission. Rumors I've heard included:
- the property had been sold off and was going to be torn down
- the Action Commission was moving, but the building had been sold to private developers
- nothing was going to happen.
I called MAC Executive Director Cynthia Croom to get the low down and put the rumors about the building to rest. She tells me that next year MAC administrative offices and the Community Programs Division will be re-locating to the Howard Office Building on the south side of Downtown. The North Head Start Center will remain where it is at the old school building in Salemtown.
