Medina Township trustees finalized the sale of the Remsen Building to Medina Creative Housing Inc. during an emergency meeting Tuesday night.
Trustees Mark Radice and Michael Stopa approved the resolution finalizing the sale. All that remains to do is transfer the deed to Medina Creative Housing.
Trustee Ken DeMichael did not attend the meeting because he was out of town.
Last month, trustees voted 3-0 to accept the $100,000 offer from Creative Housing, which had signed a five-year lease last December with the township.
The Medina Soccer Association, which leases space in the building, made a previous $100,000 offer for the building at 3314 Myers Road. But per its five-year lease with the township signed last December, Creative Housing had 45 days to exercise its right of first refusal and match the offer. The Weymouth Preservation Society also subleases space in the building.
Medina Township purchased the building several years ago for $80,000 with plans to build a police station at the site, but those plans never materialized.
The building originally was built in 1925 as Weymouth School, before serving as a school for disabled children in 1956 and later becoming the first county-supported school for disabled students in the state.
