PORTLAND — The future use of the former Nathan Clifford Elementary School will be the subject of a public forum on Oct. 2.

The Nathan Clifford Re-Use Advisory Task Force will hold the meeting at 5:30 p.m. in Room 209 at City Hall.

The City Council appointed the task force to gather information about the historic building and recommend preferred uses.

The task force will present information on the current condition of the building and seek ideas for reuse. It will report its findings to the council’s Housing and Community Development Committee.

Opened in 1909, the school on Falmouth Street closed more than a year ago, when it was replaced by the Ocean Avenue Elementary School.
