Public Forum for MPCSD Purchase of IW Property Only Hours Away

The Mount Pleasant Community School District Board of Directors will meet in session tonight to discuss the purchase of the central properties of Iowa Wesleyan, which include Howe Student Activity Center and Ruble Arena, the Student Union, Old Main, Pioneer Hall, University Chapel, and the P.E.O Memorial Building.

Voices throughout the community have echoed regarding the purchase and seem to be heading in opposite directions. Some members of the community believe that the purchase of these properties is a great chance to relocate all elementary students to the same area, and better focus our resources. The other side of the coin think that this project is too expensive, and there are concerns about children not being able to walk to school if their parents specifically moved to a location closer to a certain elementary building. Of course, there are other arguments for both sides out there, but these seem to be some of the main points of discussion.

The public now has another opportunity to weigh in on these talks, voice their concerns, and find the answers they are looking for. This public forum will be held in the Mount Pleasant Community High School Media Center at 6pm on Monday, August 28th, and is scheduled to last for 2 hours. This is an informational meeting regarding the IW property purchase, and there will be a chance for questions and answers.
