Town of Lakeview is again trying to sell the former Sunshine Children’s Center located at 618 S. F St. in Lakeview. During its Tuesday, Oct. 11 meeting, the Lakeview Town Council passed a motion to offer the property to Lake County School District #7 before putting it on the open market.
LCSD#7 entered an agreement with the Town of Lakeview in 2021 to purchase the building, with the plan to have necessary work completed on the property and then reopen it as a much-needed daycare. However, after learning more about the amount of work that would be required to bring the building into Americans with Disabilities Act compliance along with other costs, the District opted not to purchase the property. More recently, the District once again expressed potential interest in the space.
