Lakewood schools planning bond vote for 2014
Current plans include $59.8 million worth of improvements that district planners call "essential," including safety, security, heating, plumbing and electrical improvements to the 30-year-old building. State construction assistance funds would cover $6.4 million of that.
On top of that work, planners recommend $18 million in additional improvements:
•Added space to allow for enrollment growth and new programs (such as video production), $7 million;
Learning areas for large-group work, $1.5 million;
An auxiliary gymnasium, $2.2 million;
Installing all-weather track and synthetic turf at the stadium, $3.1 million; and
Improvements to soccer, baseball and softball fields, $4.2 million.
The total package would cost the owner of a $250,000 home nearly $171 per year, or $14.22 per month, based on district estimates. If only the essential improvements were made, tax rates likely would remain flat.
