How were these funding priorities and amounts decided?

  • ‚ÄčA Community Facilities Advisory Committee met for nearly two months, reviewed the district needs, and provided their recommendation based on professional analysis.  The committee recommended a $40 million capital levy and identified all needs as critical.  The committee also recommended a full Facilities Condition Assessment be completed.
  • District Personnel provided the tiered ranking of projects to provide clarity around most urgent need
  • Projects may be re-prioritized pending the full Facilities Condition Assessment and/or emergent issues.
  • Facilities Condition Assessment and Community Facilities Advisory Committee will provide ongoing guidance for spending capital levy dollars.
