The Lyons Central School District is taking the long-approach when it comes to planning.
The $9.96 million capital project, which was approved in 2015 is complete. Now, officials have invited residents to the Community Long Range Planning Committee on Tuesday, Jan. 28 at 6 p.m. at the Lyons Elementary School, 98 William St.
It will be the first time that committee meets.
“I don’t know the future of Lyons; you don’t know the future of Lyons,” Superintendent Don Putnam said in a video message posted to Twitter. “We need to come together to start mapping out what our facilities are going to look like for the next five years, 10 years, 15 years down he road. We need your input. We don’t have a plan yet, but we need to have a conversation forum to start talking and start planning about Lyons’ future.”
Among the possible changes: A new elementary school. The current facility is 100 years old. It’s a possibility, but not a guarantee.
Officials say the committee will determine the direction.
