Tonawanda residents approve sale of Central School building

For the second time this year, City of Tonawanda residents overwhelmingly approved the sale of the former Central School building. The sale was approved by a vote of 180 to 78 in a special referendum Tuesday.

The building and adjacent parking lot is being sold for $165,000 to Hunt and Associates, which may utilize the property for either residential apartments or a community center. District officials expect the sale to close in the next 60 days.

Central School, which has been unused for academics for more than a decade, was previously sold to developer David Capretto earlier this year for $220,000. Voters approved the deal in May, but the developer backed out over the summer.
