Spencer nears decision on April building referendum
After postponing a possible building referendum in fall to take time to research more options, the Spencer Board of Education is again nearing a decision on taking a potential project to district voters. This time, the Board is considering an innovative gymnasium structure idea that could bring with it some federal grant dollars to help pay for construction.
Over the course of the next month, the Board will be bringing together construction cost estimates and more detailed building plans to make a call on possibly sending the project to voters for an April 2, 2019 referendum vote. The plans under discussion as 2018 comes to an end include a new gymnasium on the east side of the school complex, an area for athlete weight training, an addition for a choral music area, and updates to the existing high school Family and Consumer Education (FACE) classroom. The Board is to get its first look at cost estimates and the possible property tax implications of such a project at its next meeting on Jan. 9 (6:30 p.m. in the high school IMC).
