Asbestos abatement begins at Lime City School

Posted: Updated:
PERRYSBURG TOWNSHIP, OH (Toledo News Now) -

An old elementary school that has been vacant for more than 20 years is finally getting demolished, and neighbors already have ideas about what they'd like to see in its place.

Crews just started working on asbestos abatement at the old Lime City School this week. It should be finished in early August. Demolition of the building on Route 20 and Lime City Road should begin in early September.

Perrysburg Township purchased the 5-acre property for $110,000 last year. No plans have been set for what will happen after demolition, but people who live nearby have a few ideas.

"Some sort of a park, where you could walk or maybe ride a bike around, or something like that," suggested William Tinney, who has lived in the area for 73 years.

Township officials will continue to discuss what the property could become.
