Old Buildings and Tennis Court Will Be Demolished at Northview

Dothan city school board members met earlier this evening to discuss the possibility of disposing a few properties on the Northview High School campus.

Two old wooden houses built in the early 1980's are getting demolished along with the school's old tennis courts. Officials say the properties simply just look unpleasant. The buildings are located right behind Northview high school near the Dothan Technology Center. Dothan City School Superintendent Tim Wilder says there's weeds growing all throughout the property and it has been looking worn down for awhile now. The tennis courts aren't being used either because the Northview tennis team practices at Westgate Park.

"That's right, that's it. We want to make it more appealing to the eye. We have a beautiful campus at Northview High School, a brand new athletic facility out there and when you drive around back you see that the Dothan Technology Center is doing a lot of great things to spruce it up the area. And those two buildings that are left are eyesores. They have been for thirty years," said Wilder.

Administrators say these renovations will help make the school look better and build more morale for students. A deadline date hasn't been set yet. The Dothan City School Board will proceed with this project by looking for bidders to take on the demolition.
