ALAMEDA -- The school district has scheduled a series of community meetings for the public to join into discussions on how to proceed with the Historic Alameda High School.
The east wing of the building has been closed because it needs seismic upgrades. The Alameda Architectural Preservation Society and other members of the public want the building, which was built in 1925, to be saved.
The district hasn't indicated any particular plan at this time, whether for seismic repairs or other options. The meetings are intended to inform the public about the building's issues and invite suggestions for its future.
The first meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday in the Alameda High School cafeteria. The other meetings are set for 6 p.m. April 15; 1 p.m. April 20; and 6 p.m. May 9. All meetings will take place in the Alameda High cafeteria. The high school is located at 2201 Encinal Ave. The school board will hear the final report on the topic at its May 28 regular meeting at City Hall.
