Board Adopts Five-Year Capital Plan

The Bronxville School in Bronxville, New York.Assistant Superintendent Dan Carlin presented the Bronxville Board of Education with a five-year capital plan as reviewed by the facilities committee. The plan was prepared by district architects, KG&D, reflecting the findings of the building conditions survey shared at the December Board meeting. The Board accepted the architect's report, designating the overall building condition as satisfactory. The capital plan, also endorsed by the Board, encompasses ongoing maintenance and infrastructure needs as well as projects contemplated for some indefinite time in the future, including renovation of Middle School science labs and major improvements to the auditorium. The Board discussed the need for private capital drive to underwrite these projects (in addition to Foundation support). The finance committee is also considering establishing a construction reserve. The plan can be found here, and schematic designs for future projects are here. The Board does not expect to consider these plans earlier than 2012.
