Frustration, Monday night, as the Sioux City Community School Board mulls a new location for Bryant Elementary.
After nearly two years of questions, and concerns, the board voted 5-to-2 to move forward.
The board voted to have Superintendent Dr. Paul Gausman, and his team, meet with homeowners near the 122-year-old school to talk about the possibility that some of them could lose their homes if a new school is built on the same site.
At the same time, the board wants the superintendent, and an architect, to study all options for a school on the current Bryant site, or an adjacent area.
"We want to make sure we are making a very prudent, careful decision, considering it's a long term decision that people in this community are going to live with for potentially a century or more," said Mike Krysl, School Board President.
The other possible options for Bryant that were still left on the table are the Sunken Gardens, Hubbard Park and Leif Erikson Park.
A separate proposal would close Bryant, and move some of the students to a new school that could be built on the site of the old Hoover Middle School.
Monday night, the board voted on a contract with an architect to draw up plans for that new building.
