Concern from neighbors about a potential buyer for the site of the burned-down Tulsa School of Arts and Sciences/Barnard School prompts Tulsa Public Schools to seek public comment.

The prospective buyer has plans for a medical facility on the site. TPS’s Chris Payne says the district wants to address concerns residents may have, though he says, the sale of the property could help the district.

He says funds from the sale could go to areas in the district where they’re “desperately needed.”

A public hearing will be held 6 p.m. Thursday at Wilson Academy, at 11th and Delaware.
