The sales contract for the former Eagle Street School building has been signed, District Superintendent Paul DiFonzo told the Fredonia Central Board of Education on Tuesday.
The new owners, SUN SPEC Building Co. of Erie, Pa., will be in town Jan. 14 to make final arrangements with the school district to take possession of the building.
It plans to convert the old school into residential units, and to build 10 homes behind it. The units will not be subsidized housing.
DiFonzo said furniture and equipment from the school will be sold, but details have yet to be worked out.
