SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Monday night, the school board unanimously approved the Washington Elementary School project. Once school lets out this spring, demolition will begin on the 92-year-old school.

It's estimated to cost more than $3 million to take down the building, and clear the site. After the school is gone, the street will be widened, along with the sidewalks.

Geo-thermal wells will be put in to heat and cool the new Washington Elementary which will be built on the site.

Meantime, the board has set a date for a public hearing on Hoover Middle School. At the next meeting, on April 8th, the public can voice their opinion about the project.

The old school is currently being rented by a church, but that contract is up in a few weeks. At that point, the school board is considering demolition.

A new building will replace Clark, Crescent Park, and Lincoln Elementary. The school will be big enough to hold 650 students.
