Westside group wins bid for Jefferson School
The Eureka City School Board accepted the only bid put up for Jefferson School at its special meeting this afternoon, and it came from the Westside Community Improvement Association (WCIA). The bid was for $610,000.
This is great news for the grassroots neighborhood group that has overcome monstrous obstacles in pursuit of a community center to benefit the residents of Eureka’s battered west side.
“Now the real work begins,” said WCIA president pro tem Heidi Benzonelli. “It’s a happy day.”
