HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -
City leaders want the public's input on the future of three historic properties in downtown Huntsville.
Mayor Tommy Battle created an online forum called "Imagine Huntsville" to gather ideas and suggestions for the plan.
Three buildings in particular are up for discussion, including two schools.
Mayor Battle and Superintendent Dr. Casey Wardynski will present details on the initiative at the old Regions Bank on West Side Square at 1 p.m. Thursday.
The bank is one of the buildings planned for transition. Formerly known as the First National Bank of Alabama, the Greek Revival structure was built in the courthouse square in 1835.
It has served as a bank until 2010, when Regions Bank decided it should change into a building for community use.
The second building up for discussion is East Clinton Elementary in Old Town. The school was built in 1926 in the Art Deco style and closed in 2012, according to Imagine Huntsville's website.
School leaders plan to sell the property to fund other capital improvements to schools.
The future of the Annie Merts Center on the corner of Randolph and White Street is also up discussion.
The 85-year-old building currently holds administrative offices for the Huntsville City Schools system. This property is also being considered for sale.
Imagine Huntsville also encourages idea on how to fund these projects.
