Vacant school to be demolished, negotiations still underway

All or part of the old Waldport middle school building will soon be demolished.

The Lincoln County School District has accepted a proposal from a Florence excavation company to demolish the vacant Waldport middle school building – with two options that depend on the outcome of negotiations with a local not-for-profit agency.

“An empty school building is expensive to maintain, can be an eyesore, and doesn’t contribute toward the education of our children.
