ANDERSON, Ind. —
It was, he said, "the first round of qualifying any long-term investment by anyone that had any interest in acquiring" the Wigwam.
He added that he'd been approached by multiple independent parties, locally and nationwide, with interest in transforming the facility into a multi-use complex, but that "both ACS and the city decided to pursue other options."
Wilkerson said he'd still like to engage the school district in a study to document "valuation of its current status and potential for development."
"We don't need studies, we need buyers," Chow said.
He added that the school district wants the Wigwam to be used for the community, like the former Meadowbrook Elementary School that was recently sold to Lindberg Church of Christ for use as a sanctuary and activities center.
The Wigwam still has many supporters who would like to see it in use again.
"I hope some white knight, some business, comes in and takes over the building," Chow said.
