KAMLOOPS — When Stuart Wood Elementary closed its doors last June, the city was left to come up with a plan for the school property. 

The city is now working with the province to determine just what is allowed on the historic property. 

Chief Administrative Officer David Trawin says one option city council is looking at is placing the museum on the property. 

"If that's the case and it does become city property at the end of the day, or at least in trust with the city where we can run a museum, we are looking at basically extending the school grounds, and extending the park that's beside the school, just to the west of the school, and kind of tying them together and opening it up where it becomes more of a positive space instead of having a space that looks like it's isolated off with a fence."

Kamloops population growth slightly lower than expected
