Just like the School for the Blind and other rather shady deals this private 
developer is talking with deaf only after it is a done
deal. And the Michigan Department of Ed, Grandholm, and both Dem and 
Republican legislators ddn't really consult with deaf folks, or
with the LIO program recipients for that matter.

This deal stinks to high heaven and shows what they think of the blind too.

FLINT (WJRT) -- (12/23/10)--It's now a done deal. Gov. Jennifer Granholm has 
officially signed off on the sale of the Michigan
School for the Deaf in Flint.



That now clears the way for a developer to buy the campus, renovate it and 
turn it into the new home of both the School for the Deaf
and Powers Catholic

High School.



It was late Wednesday that Granholm signed off on the sale of the property. 
Many are calling it a welcome Christmas present as it
was one of the governor's

last acts before the Christmas break.



According to officials with the developers Lurvey-White, what that means is 
they can move ahead with the $36 million renovation
plans on the campus.



As we've reported in the past, they plan on redoing portions of the campus 
with the expectation that Powers Catholic High School
will move there.



They will also create new, state-of-the-art facilities for the Michigan 
School for the Deaf.



One of the first matters of business, developers say, involves a series of 
meetings Jan. 10 with alumni, administration and students
at MSD to gather their

input and seek their support while revising designs to meet their needs.



Developers hope to hear soon about Powers' fundraising efforts for their 
portion of the MSD property.



For those who have been backing the sale, the governor's signature is seen 
as a positive move for the entire community.
