Old school project

The Downtown Development Authority discussed the acquisition and renovation of the old Adams Street school at its Jan. 19 meeting. Plans include repairing the building’s roof, windows, floors and restrooms to make it a community arts center. Based on estimates from a county evaluation of needs for the building, renovation would cost $1.75 million to $2 million, according to Precision Planning. ”Our renovations would cost considerably less than that because the commissioners planned to level the gym and make it a courtroom,” said DDA member Chris Curry. “We want it to be a place for the community to perform shows and offer theatre events.” DDA members hope to pay for most of the repairs with historic preservation grants. ”The commission passed a resolution making Zebulon a Preserve America Community,” said DDA member Don Collins. “That will make us eligible for several historic grants.”
