Committee supports Wigwam proposal

Decision could be reached by March 1 deadline

(Continued)

Thimlar said he has been working on the project for over two years and has visited Anderson 14 times during that time.

“I believe our plan is viable,” he said. “There is a strong possibility we’re going to get to the finish line. The community has to rally behind the effort.”

Thimlar said there is open dialogue with Anderson Community School Corp.; he said the school system understands the iconic building the Wigwam is.

Snyder said the classroom space could be used for adult education and other programs.

“I believe we can see something at a document stage by March 1,” Snyder said.

ACS wants some assistance in paying the $12,000 to $15,000 per month utility costs after March 1, he said.

Thimlar said utility costs are a part of the conversations with ACS.

The committee also supports the ongoing dialogue between Anderson Community Schools, WSE, and city officials and hopes that education will be a part of the plan.

WSE informed the Committee that it would be offering other methods of community engagement next week.
