PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Whatever happened to the former Mary A. Wilson Elementary School? It is transitioning into Graystone Court.
Jeff Long, owner of Graystone Court, purchased the empty school last year from the Punxsutawney Area School District and is converting it into independent living apartments for seniors 55 and older.
Long said there is a need to provide quality, affordable housing to those seeking a safe, maintenance-free home.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” The elimination of parking on Grace Way and Water Street was discussed at Tuesdayâ€™s Public Safety Committee meeting, with members agreeing to take a second look at the elimination of all parking on the two streets because of increased truck traffic.
With the construction of a brine water treatment facility adjacent to the sewage treatment plant, the increased truck traffic has been a concern of council, committee member Roger Steele said.
