IRONWOOD — The Ironwood City Commission is holding a special meeting at 4 p.m. today to consider a resolution to purchase the property on 108 E. Arch St., the location of the former Sleight Elementary School.
According to the resolution, city staff identified the parcel as a potential source of affordable housing. City staff recommend purchase of the property so a private developer can convert the property into rental units.
The city recognizes the lack of affordable housing in the area as a serious problem, the resolution says.
