Grand Island CSD Residents Approve $51.4M Capital Project
Campus is happy to congratulate Grand Island Central School District on its successful bond vote. District residents showed overwhelming support for the proposed capital project, which includes $51.4 million in district-wide renovations.
Proposition 1, which has no tax impact on District residents and businesses, includes $46.8M in renovations to five District buildings that were identified as part of the District's State-mandated Building Condition Survey. Voters approved the proposition 1,610 to 292.
Proposition 2, which could only be considered upon passage of Proposition 1, enables the District to add $4.6M in outdoor athletic improvements auditorium renovations to the main project. The included scope items are additional priorities that didn't fit into the "zero tax impact" option. Proposition 2 passed 1,362 to 516, with a .02 percent tax increase.
Construction for the project is anticipated to begin in 2013.
