WCS presents first look at Capital Project
The Walton Central School District held its first Capital Project forum on Thursday, February 26. Nearly 100 people attended the meeting, which was held in the high school cafeteria.
Many valid questions and comments were brought up during an emotional question and answer session.
Several questions could not be answered during the night, but the Board of Education and WCS administration are working to make sure all questions get answers.
“What I truly love about this community is people are passionate and emotional about their school,” Superintendent Roger Clough said. “We want community feedback and input. This is a long process and we need to work on this together.”
The evening started with Board of Education Vice President Jim Hoyt explaining why the school is now looking at bringing Townsend to the main campus. Scott Duell, of BC&A, then unveiled the preliminary blueprints of the project, but noted things can – and likely will – change during the course of the planning. Business Administrator Greg Dale discussed the funding of the project before the floor was opened to questions.
The Board of Education has yet to give its final approval to put the Capital Project out to vote for May 19, 2015. It is anticipated the BOE will vote on the next step at its March 24 meeting.
