CENTRAL, La. (AP) - The Central School Board has voted to tear down the old Central High School girls gym, which was built in 1927.

Superintendent Michael Faulk told the board Monday night the next step is to solicit quotes from contractors and then proceed with demolition.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1YLNylP) negotiations between Faulk and a group of history-loving residents who call themselves the Central Cultural Foundation broke down earlier this year. In June, the board agreed to try one more time, asking for bids from outside groups willing to lease the old gym, which is located on old Central Middle School property.

School officials said no one applied.
