Planning commission hears possible new uses for Helen Baker
The Glencoe-Silver Lake School District building project is moving along and the targeted date to move out of Helen Baker Elementary in Glencoe is coming closer.
Assistant Glencoe City Administrator Dan Ehrke told the planning commission of some very preliminary possibilities for the Helen Baker site at the commission’s Thursday, Feb. 9, meeting.
In his presentation, Ehrke informed the commission that the school district has received some preliminary interest from a developer to possibly renovate the building into apartments.
The rough initial plan shows 17 apartment units, six three-bedroom, seven two-bedroom and four one-bedroom apartments, with common space. The plan also would add 18 garage stalls.
The developer is currently doing an initial cost analysis to determine if renovating the old school would even be a possibility.
