Work is expected to be finished by the start of the school year.

Demolition work has started on the Chillicothe R-II School District’s properties on Bryan Street. At the last school board meeting, The Chillicothe R-II School Board approved the bid for demolition for three properties on Bryan Street, located at 303, 315 and 317 Bryan Street. While no immediate plans were discussed for the soon-to-be empty lots, in the past school officials have stated plans may include expanding parking at Grand River Technical School.
