In order for our bond to be successful, we need to know what our community is willing to support. We spent winter 2016/17 conducting focus groups and surveying our community. Summer 2017 was spent holding monthly community meetings where professionals in the fields of architecture, construction, bond financing, education, transportation, and staffing presented their research findings. We found out, OUR COMMUNITY WANTS:
a long-term fix, not another band-aid
community elementary schools
the School Board to do their homework (researching ALL options for short and long-term cost & feasibility)
an accounting of where the money is spent
most importantly, they want the BEST VALUE for THEIR TAXPAYER DOLLAR
We heard everyone loud and clear. Below are the options researched and reasons they were ruled out.
