One of Duluth's most scenic vantage points - the Central High School property, has been up  for sale for most of four years, but still sits empty. 

On Tuesday night, school and city leaders took a step to do something about that: a formal working arrangement has been made.

The Duluth School Board voted to work with the Duluth Economic Development Agency to develop a small area plan for the city-owned property.

"Really what that is is talking about the future of the site. What is the best use of that site and how can we move forward to market those properties in ways that's beneficial not only to the school district, but to the future of the city as well to meet the needs of the community," Superintendent Bill Gronseth said. 

This new arrangement is important because the sale of the site, which is expected to be in the millions of dollars, is funding that is needed as part of the district's long-range facilities plan

DEDA is scheduled to vote on moving forward with the small area plan tomorrow afternoon.
