The undeveloped Board of Education property behind the Milliken school and adjacent to Severance Center was discussed. The carriage house on the property is currently used for storage, but is in poor repair. Landscaping, construction, and use options were presented at the meeting. The main theme was as a nature center with classrooms and habitat restoration. The level of detail presented was some picture layout options. No costs or schedules were developed yet. The purpose of the presentation was to initiate community discussion of the merits and details for such a school system investment.
There was a long presentation on the completed building renovations and future expected renovations. The plans were considerable and covered mostly basic infrastructure like boilers and roofs and whole building renovations. There was further discussion about more whole building window replacements in the district. The presentation said nothing about leftover tasks from the three buildings renovated last Summer.
