The Town Council supportively discussed consideration of adjusting Bradfield’s construction building permit by $200,000. The combined $400,000 would be available for funding possible architectural improvements selected solely by the District.

SUMMARY OF BRADFIELD ELEMENTARY’S ZONING APPROVAL 
Prior to approving the zoning ordinance on April 9, 2018, the Town Council read and listened to residents’ suggestions and concerns about the Highland Park Independent School District’s plans to raze and rebuild the 92-year-old Bradfield Elementary School.  In considering the views and feedback from the community, the zoning request was approved but requiring the District to participate in an architectural peer review.  

WHAT IS AN ARCHITECTURAL PEER REVIEW?
The peer review process provides an opportunity for the Town and District architects to work in a partnership anticipated to lead to an improved building design.  A report of the architects’ findings will be provided to the Town and District.  You may read more about Mr. Windham, the Town’s consulting architect, by clicking here
