At the Monday, May 12, meeting of the Zionsville Community Schools Board of School Trustees, Superintendent Scott Robison said he no longer is recommending "option 1" for the maintenance facility that was planned for the CR 875 campus.
"Though it was the most cost effective, it was the most onerous to neighbors because of the proximity to the Cobblestone Gardens entrance," he said.
Robison said after hearing input from the Cobblestone area neighbors he went out to the site and looked at it from their point of view. He said administrators are still studying options and haven't made a decision about how to meet the storage maintenance needs of the growing corporation.
One option might be to have two locations, building a small storage shed on the main campus for sports use and another one on the north side of the CR 875 campus as shown on the 2008 master plan.
"It could be about half the solution," Robison said. "We can't get the whole facility there."
In the meantime, work has begun on the high school renovation, according to Victor Landfair, of Skillman. He gave an update on the project budget, telling the board there's more than $1 million in savings at this point.
Landfair also said the first phase of Pleasant View Elementary School renovations will begin this summer; the second phase has not yet been scheduled.
