City Manager Randy Bridge told City Council members that he has potential buyers for the old Madison Street School.

“We do have some people who are interested in that facility, tearing it down and building 55-plus condominiums there,” said Bridge without going into any further details.

The plan will be presented to the Planning Board at their next meeting on April 16.

Also on the agenda for the Planning Board Meeting will be the Twin Creeks Subdivision.

He said the Twin Creeks Homeowners Association is in the process of disbanding. Their covenants with the residents states that if the Association disbands, the city would take over certain aspects of the covenants.

The Planning Board will decide which aspects of the covenants will be picked up by the city and make their recommendations to City Council.

“We’re looking at primary things like the lot or the setbacks,” said Bridge. “We really do want to protect the existing houses that are up there.”

The Planning Board will make their recommendations on both of these items, then present them to City Council for final action.

Bridge said the Planning Board usually meets at 3:30 p.m., but this meeting is being pushed back to 6:30 so that people who work will be able to attend. The meeting will be held at the Fire House on N. Church St.

Planning Board meetings are open to the public.

The New Carlisle City Council meets on the first and third Mondays of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the Smith Park Shelter House. The public is invited to attend.
