A group is trying to raise funds to renovate it and keep it as a community asset there.
The Redmond City Council will be deciding next week whether to let the group take it over or whether to sell it to bussinessman Roger Lee, who heads up EDCO, for one dollar to renovate at his own expense to rent out.
Richard Lance is a member of the group "Save our Schoolhouse" trying to raise 100-thousand dollars to renovate the school.
"The city sees it as a problem. They don't want any enterprise for them to subsidize. We're trying to show it could be a great community asset, a wonderful function in a wonderful park. Hopefully they'll see the opportunity."
The city council gave the group two months to show how they would raise the funds to renovate the school and pay for its maintenance going forward. They figure they'll need 100-thousand dollars. They haven't raised those funds yet, but do have a business plan that would limit the city's financial involvement.
