Process for Success Update

Community and staff input meetings to discuss the Facilities Master Plan proposal updateduring the months of January and February, along with an online feedback form, provided valuable feedback on the Facilities Master Plan proposal. The Process for Success (PFS) committee reconvened on February 9 to begin carefully reviewing all feedback and to establish the next steps in both short-term and long-term facilities planning within our district. The PFS has asked that sub-committees reconvene to determine if there are additional options and do further research to ensure a Facilities Master Plan proposal is developed that reflects community needs while being a good steward of taxpayer’s dollars.
