Tulsa developer seeks residents' input on old Barnard Elementary School property

TULSA - A Tulsa developer is reaching out to neighbors of the old Barnard Elementary school grounds.

A representative for Pinnacle Properties told 2NEWS he hopes neighbors in the Gillette and Yorktown areas are open to seeing residential properties built.

Tulsa Public Schools owns the property near 17th and Lewis and will put it up for sale if they like the ideas presented. The property could support between 10 and 12 lots and a park.

The lot has been cleared and cleaned after a fire destroyed the building last year. The only thing that remains is an old school sign.
