This week we are asking:

"What should this year's high school graduates do?"

See attached chart for results from last week's poll on what to do with the McLain School. Here are the comments posted on that poll:

Make it a homeless teen housing shelter, affordable apartments or inside year round farmers Maine products market. (6)

Convert it into Sr. housing (2)

Affordable housing

Toss up between workforce housing or city hall

senior housing

Make it into affordable apartments.

Get rid of it.

Private School

housing for middle income people

senior or vets housing

Renovate into affordable apartments

Re-acquire the Lincoln St. Center and combine properties for an in-town YMCA or Boys & Girls Club with community pool.

Elderly Housing

Tear it down. There's too much hoarding of these old buildings.
