MEDINA – A former school on Bates Road that has been closed for five years is eyed by two different prospective buyers.

The Board of Education will hold a public hearing at 6:30 p.m. today about selling the former Towne Primary School. (The board meets at the administrative office next to the high school.)

“They are both very credible offers,” said Mark Kruzynski, the district superintendent. “Both offers are very intriguing.”

He declined to disclose the offers because of the potential for influencing the sale price.

The school was closed five years ago due to declining student enrollment. The grade levels at Towne were moved to the Oak Orchard Elementary School.

Towne has been on the market for 3 ½ years. The district has been paying about $50,000 annually for maintenance and insurance for the site.
