Two community groups at odds over the fate of Salt Lake District's Uintah Elementary School will get together this weekend to try to develop a mutually acceptable questionnaire for area residents.
Friends of Uintah has taken a survey, but the Uintah School Community Council did not agree with the way the questionnaire was compiled and the survey was not discussed during a Salt Lake Board meeting Tuesday night.Instead, board member Stephen Boyden, who represents the area, said he will get the two groups together this weekend to work out the differences so an agreeable survey can be conducted, or see if some other solution can be reached.
The School Community Council favors demolishing the school and replacing it on the same site. The estimated cost would be $4 million. Even with renovation, classroom space and other factors would not meet today's school needs.
The Friends of Uintah are on rec-ord as favoring renovation.
