The CAT's Preferred Master Facilities Plan

At the September Board meeting Clay Barclay, Rob Hewlett, Lisa McKinney, and Matt Petersman presented the Community Advisory Team’s preferred Facility Master Plan to the Board.

The CAT recommended that the Board keep the total facility construction cost to less than $72.5 million and to include: 
  • Building a new junior high for grades 6-8 designed with grade levels in separate areas
  • Include space for programs that are currently housed in modulars located next to the junior high
  • Integrate the Preschool program into two elementary school buildings
  • Site safety at the junior high and high school campus which includes updated traffic flow and parking
The CAT also asked the Board to consider adding to the plan the construction of an auditorium, HVAC and roof needs at the high school, upgrades and visitor bleachers at the stadium, and to consider what to do with the athletic buildings that would be displaced by the construction of a new junior high building. 
 
The CAT recognized that the preschool, high school HVAC and roof, and the auditorium are hot button issues with the community. 
 
The Board will take the CAT’s recommendations (in addition to the feedback received from an informal online survey and an upcoming survey that will randomly sample registered voters) into consideration when making a decision about facilities and the possibility of a future bond issue.
