The Macomb School District, the city of Macomb, McDonough District Hospital, and the YMCA of McDonough County have talked for several years about building a combination middle school and community center, a project called Community First.  It now looks like the school district is ready to move ahead on construction of a middle school with or without the partners.

The concept of the Community First project in Macomb became public a couple years ago. The partners believe they’re now close to deciding whether that concept will become a reality.
