The Wichita School District is looking for someone to buy an empty school building. Neighbors living hear the old Mueller Elementary are happy about the possible change.
Mueller is one of many buildings the district stopped using this school year because it opened new schools. It has maintained the property, but that hasn't kept unwanted visitors from using it. Neighbors say they've already seen an increase in litter, broken glass and beer cans on the property.
The neighborhood hopes the building will be used for something that will add to the area. "You know an abandoned building like it is, I don't want graffiti in the neighborhood. We have a good neighborhood," said Terry Nash.
The Wichita School District plans to auction the building off. It expects the most likely bidders will be non-profits, like churches and private schools. The auction won't happen until after the first of the year.
