Board Votes Unanimously to Pursue Concept 5
The South Burlington School Board, at their regular meeting held Sept. 4, 2019 (see minutes here) made a unanimous decision to direct Dore and Whittier Architects (recently named one of the top 100 green building design firms in the country) to move on to Phase III of the Master Planning and Visioning process using Concept 5 as a guide. The team will now be able to home in on the particulars of a design for a new middle school, high school, and wellness center on the existing campus with an eye toward a March 2020 bond vote. An existing conditions video will be created to highlight current infrastructure and educational challenges. In addition, school tours will be scheduled for those who would like/are able to get an up close look at current MS and HS facilities. For details on all 5 concepts considered, see this presentation.
To hear more details on board members' (as well as school board student representative Cole Patno's) rationale for choosing this option to explore in depth, see the video above.
