Community Reviews Two Possible Site Plans

On July 14, 2014, Beilharz Architects presented two site plans for community review.  Both site plans include renderings of the PreK to 5 building and the approximate location of the new 6 to 12 building.  Both plans detail future development for the site, including a transportation center, an auditorium, and an additional gymnasium.  

One of the plans, Scheme A, shows a building that utilizes a courtyard and a circular traffic pattern within the building.  Scheme B is shows without a courtyard and utilizes a slightly larger footprint.  

Over 80 community members attended the meeting to provide feedback to the Board of Education and the architects.  In order to continue the conversation from the meeting, please click on the link shown here to share your thoughts on the two proposed site plans.

Additional meetings will be held in August to share classroom designs and the educational plan for both the PreK to 5 and the 6 to 12 building.
