Facilities Planning Committee Update: Jan. 11, 2023

Jan. 11, 2023

During the January meeting of the Facilities Planning Board Advisory Committee, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Tony Lake shared an update about current construction at Lindbergh High School, and Chief Financial Officer Joel Scheible discussed next steps for master facility planning.

The district is planning to propose a no tax rate increase bond issue in April 2024 to fund districtwide facility improvements, which would include major renovations at Truman Middle School, and the creation of separate cafeterias and gymnasiums at Crestwood, Long and Kennerly elementary schools.

Additional research is ongoing with the community to determine additional needs and projects surrounding campus traffic flow and creation of a farm-to-table learning program at the former Concord Farmers Club.

Scott Barbagallo, director of facilities and construction, shared an update on the development of a repair and replacement plan for building HVAC units, and a building roof audit.

The district is also researching custodial and maintenance needs for Lindbergh High School once construction is complete.

The Facilities Planning Advisory Committee exists to make recommendations about facility needs and improvements, instructional design and district enrollment trends. The committee also reviews and update Lindbergh's demographic study every two years. It is chaired by Chief Financial Officer Joel Scheible and Chief Human Resources Officer Dr. Brian McKenney. Meetings are run by Superintendent Dr. Tony Lake.

The next committee meeting will be held March 8, 2023.
