CORINTH, Miss. (AP) - The Corinth Board of Aldermen is looking at new strategies to encourage redevelopment of the vacant East Corinth school property.

The Daily Corinthian (https://bit.ly/1FXuRFr ) reports the board has asked City Attorney Wendell Trapp to research the possibility of dividing the property to be sold collectively for single-family residential development with stipulations for lot and home sizes. The possibility of offering a tax credit will also be explored.

The new consideration comes as the possibility of Corinth and Kendrick head start programs combining at the old school apparently fell off the table.

The city hopes to see an interested developer demolish the existing building, which was vacated in 2010 after the new Corinth Elementary School was built.
