(Holyoke, MA)  –  The Holyoke City Council has voted to let Mayor Alex Morse sell the former Lynch Middle School to a developer for three-quarters-of-a-million.  Plans call for demolishing the building to make way for a retail complex at the site just off exit 17.  The 9-6 vote means the building won’t be returned to the school department for preschool classrooms. Morse has pledged to work with Superintendent Sergio Paez to find another location to expand early childhood education in the city.
