City considers land grant for school system central office
SALISBURY — Salisbury City Council agreed tonight to consider giving the Rowan-Salisbury School System land worth $200,000 for a downtown central office for school administrators.
The property is located in the 300 block of South Main Street. While the Rowan County Board of Commissioners must approve the proposal before construction begins, plans call for the 62,000-square-foot building to be constructed on the southern portion of the lot, where a service station now stands, interim City Manager Doug Paris said after the meeting.
The council also agreed to consider building and maintaining a 160-space parking lot on the same block. The current parking lot would provide some of those spaces, Paris said.
The former fitness building, which the city owns, would remain, he said.
