AUBURN, N.Y. — The Auburn Enlarged City School District voted to pass the 2019-24 Capital Improvement Project Tuesday night.
According to the district website, the project would focus on improving building safety and security, indoor air quality, inclusion and accessibility, creativity, and infrastructure. Some projects include redesigning the front entrances to several school buildings, adding relief air systems and air conditioning systems, and replacing playgrounds at Herman, Owasco, and Seward elementary schools.
The project would impact all seven school buildings within the district, as well as the district office. The project will be implemented in two phases as to not exceed the debt limit. The project includes the authorization of $43.7 million that would keep the tax levy increase below 2 percent.
Ideas for the improvement project were derived from the Building Condition Survey (BCS) completed in the 2015-16 school year.
District officials say the project passed 1151 -427.
On Wednesday, 52 affidavits will be counted before the school board can announce the official passing of the project.
