[...] my kids are out of the school too so I know what you are saying.  One issue that might be worth considering, however, is property values.  Homes on the West Bench tend to be large.  As retirees look to downsize they will need a younger generation to buy their houses.  A boarded-up school will almost certainly hurt the resale value of most houses on the West Bench because it will make the West Bench much less attractive to families.

Either way, the debate on this issue is just starting.
