SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah (AP) -- A study commissioned by South Salt Lake says recently shuttered Granite High School could be turned into a new city hall, a community recreation center or a space for artists.

The Granite School District has notified the city that the 35-acre campus is up for sale. State law says the city has first right of refusal on the property, with Salt Lake County next in line.

The property currently has about 13 acres of recreation space and 7 acres each of buildings and parking.

The $25,000 study by Psomas Engineering took about six months to complete.

The school board voted 4-3 in May to close Granite High School to save money.
