Outgoing Gov. Jennifer Granholm has approved sale of the Michigan School for the Deaf's property in Flint.
WJRT-TV says Wednesday's action clears the way for a developer to buy the campus, undertake a $36 million renovation and turn it into the new home of both the School for the Deaf and Powers Catholic High School.
On Dec. 15, the outgoing state Senate gave final approval Dec. 15 to a bill allowing the state to offer the Michigan School for the Deaf property in Flint to Lurvey White Ventures LLC.
Developers say a series of meetings on Jan. 10 with alumni, administrator and School for the Deaf students will gather comments and seek support for the project.
