PCSD School Board votes to go to bond in November
In a unanimous vote at their Tuesday, August 18th board meeting, the governing board of the Park City School District adopted a resolution for a special bond election to be held on November 3, 2015. The proposition states that the issuance is “not to exceed $56-million dollars to finance the acquisition of land, acquire, construct, furnish and equip new school facilities and improve existing facilities and related improvements; and related matters.”
At total cost $66,306,336, which includes the following in this ranking order with the first project ranking the highest:
- PCHS Expansion including gymnasium remodel - $27,500,000
- New 5/6 School at EHMS Campus - $24,800,000
- McPolin Student Safety Improvements - $1,400,000
- Treasure Mountain Junior High Demolition - $606,336
- Athletic Facilities Improvements - $12,000,000
The financial bond strategy also includes using $10,306,336 of the capital reserve.
In addition, the board agreed to add specific language in the Bond Resolution that includes a commitment toward community partnerships to explore transportation solutions for student safety.
“The board’s vote tonight is a groundbreaking step in meeting the demands for our student learning needs and accommodating our growing school district,” says PCSD Superintendent Dr. Ember Conley. “This action is further proof that board is committed to doing what is best for our students, and to providing excellent and innovative education to all grades,” she adds.
In 1999, voters accepted a $30,000,000 bond that constructed Ecker Hill Middle School and Jeremy Ranch Elementary. Currently, the district is financially healthy and has successfully repaid all debt.
Two public hearings have been scheduled, focused on the bond process and educating the public:
- September 22, 6 pm: School District Administrative Offices. Focus of Public Hearing: explaining cost impact and details of bond.
- October 20, 6 pm: School District Administrative Offices
