ALPENA — Alpena Public Schools administrators have signed a letter of intent with the Southfield-based Landmark Property Management Group to begin negotiations for the potential sale of the district’s transportation center on M-32.

Superintendent John VanWagoner said he has proposed a new transportation center be constructed at the high school near the football field, in essentially a swap, for the property on M-32.

VanWagoner said by signing the agreement, the district agrees not to enter into negotiations with any other development companies for the next 30 days. He said the agreement allows Landmark time to survey the property, look at the ground materials, and to consider prices and designs.

He said the district has been working with Landmark for the past six or seven months to get to this point.
