City of Green Green residents recently approved a new school levy that will significantly upgrade/enhance school facilities within its district. According to an evaluation conducted by the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (OFCC), three of Green Local’s five school buildings are in need of expensive repairs that are not financially viable. While the district has done all it can to maintain these properties, the general consensus among many was that it was no longer a cost-effective option. The district subsequently held a series of focus groups to address these issues.
The feedback from focus group participants allowed for the development/adoption of a master facilities plan that will consolidate the district from five to four school buildings. The three oldest buildings will be demolished and replaced by the construction of two new buildings and one facility addition. Updates will also be made to the bus garage. This plan will reduce operational costs, transportation routes, as well as the number of building transitions in a student’s academic career.
The plan will more specifically:
Site and planning design are expected to be completed by the end of the year. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2023 and completed in 2026. The facilities improvement initiative will continue to enhance The City of Green’s appeal for continued residential, commercial and industrial investment; while enhancing its brand value as a prosperous, promising and progressive community.
