Save Pleasant Hill's Old Schoolhouse
This petition had 784 supporters
We ask that the Pleasant Hill Recreation and Park District board have the forward wisdom and vision to save the 97-year-old Pleasant Hill Schoolhouse at 2050 Oak Park Blvd. We urge the PHRPD to pursue efforts to save the iconic structure, either by rehabilitating it or preserving it at a minimal level until such time that the board finds the funding to preserve the building. The Old Schoolhouse can serve the community both culturally and educationally in many ways.
This amazing building housed one of Pleasant Hill’s first schools, its first police station, a theater company, and several community groups, including the Pleasant Hill Historical Society. It is the oldest public building still standing in the city. This building means so much to this community and has much potential for future generations, especially in a city whose historic sites have been eliminated over the years.
Please thoroughly review and consider Paul Nilsen’s recently submitted four-page list of potential strategies that the District has acquired, including strategies to raise the funds to preserve the Old Schoolhouse. We would like this building to be placed on the state historic register and see it protected as a valuable resource.
