Is the Academy of Flint Interested?

My source tells me that Academy of Flint, a charter school on Coldwater Road, is in the running to purchase the current Powers location on Carpenter Road. Again, this is shameless rumor mongering, although with some insider knowledge.

Academy of Flint had a rezoning bid fall through in October that would have allowed the school to relocate, so they are interested in moving.

Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
