The school bond referendum passed on November 7 with 63.6 percent* of voters authorizing the issuance of up to $120 million in bonds to pay for a new high school. The next steps in the projects include the schools planning for design and the City government marketing up to 10 acres of campus for economic development to help pay for the new school. Both the school design and an economic development agreement are scheduled to be completed in spring 2019. The design process will include multiple opportunities for public input and comment. The schedule currently calls for the new high school to begin construction in 2019, and open in summer 2021. The commercial development on up to 10 acres of the campus would commence after the new school is open.
*This is the unofficial number from the Voter Registrar on election night. The official percentage will be released in the next two weeks.
