During its May 22, 2018 study session, the Town Council received a report from the District on the results of the collaborative architectural peer review.

Of the seventeen suggestive options, totaling $754,000.00, the District selected ten items to proceed with. These options, totaling $399,000.00, include:

  • Revise window mullion layouts in an area of the building 
  • Raise the brick corbel 16” by adding three courses of brick below (and removing 16” of plaster above)
  • Delete the cast stone headers for the second level windows in an area of the building and extending the brick inset panel
  • Replace the three highest Atrium windows in plaster portion on the north and south elevations with quatrefoil elements
  • Replace the tile roof above the Administration area with roof and decorative railing.  Shift one bay forward to separate the Gym from Administration. 
  • Revise the exterior finish of Library tower to brick in lieu of plaster
  • Revise the Gym windows to affect spacing, lower the sill height, and provide brick relief on the facade
  • Provide simplified windows in the Administration area
  • Revise the window grouping design in the Atrium, provide enhanced cast stone trim for both the north and south elevations
  • Provide cast stone panels between the first and second-floor classroom windows

Both the Town and District value the strong relationship and collaborative spirit in which each works together as partners meeting community needs.  A central focus throughout the discussions has been a recognition of the community benefiting when governmental entities work in partnership to improve public schools and support the educational enrichment of its students. District staff identified $200,000 to fund some of the architectural enhancement(s). As part of the discussions, the Town Council discussed reducing the Permit fee (estimated to be $310,253) by 65%, to generate an additional $200,000 to the benefit of the District to expand the funding of selected design changes.
