New Owners Of Longfellow Making Plans

New Owners Of Longfellow Making Plans

The new owners of Longfellow Elementary School are making plans for the building. 

Dakotabilities bought the building from the school district for $650,000. It will take possession of it following the next school year. Then it will put in another million dollars to remodel the building for the people with disabilities that it serves and its employees. Dakotabilities is consolidating from two locations into one and will use the school building as its educational and training center.

“We've grown 35 percent because people with developmental disabilities come to Sioux Falls just like we do, for health care for entertainment, for housing; because it's a good place to live. It's a good place to find a job and other kinds of things. Our growth is tied to that and other things we've done. We look forward to a really successful future and this building and the project and all the things we'll be capable of doing will be beneficial to them for a long period of time,” Dakotabilities Bob Bahm said.

Dakotabilities expects to move into its new facility in March of 2016.  It plans to expand the green space around the building and leave the playground intact for people in the neighborhood to use.
