A $26 million, district-wide capital project is on the Baldwinsville Board of Education agenda Monday night.
The proposed capital project aims to improve schools' heating systems, security and other capital improvements such as roof repairs and a new concession building and bathroom facilities at Pelcher-Arcaro Stadium.
Last year, Baldwinsville residents voted against a capital improvement project, at which point the district went back to the drawing board and conducted a district-wide survey to find out what improvements residents wanted. According to Superintendent Jeanne Dangle, residents said they wanted improvements to the infrastructure and a focus on health and safety issues.
The district plans to use state building aid, state grant money and capital reserve funds to pay for the proposed projects to avoid raising Baldwinsville school taxes. An informational meeting for the public is scheduled for Dec. 10 with a public vote expected to take place Dec. 17, should the board adopt the resolution. The public is welcome to attend Monday's meeting, scheduled for 7 p.m. in the cafeteria of Durgee Junior High School.
