By an 86-14% margin, voters in the Palmyra-Macedon School District have approved a $24.5 million Facility Improvement Project.
According to a school district release, the plan includes improvements to the Primary, Intermediate, Middle and High Schools as well as the Transportation Center and the Hyde Parkway Campus Athletic Facilities. The main focus of the project will be safety and security, preserving building envelopes, keeping building systems operable and improving student access to athletic facilities with an artificial turf playing surface for soccer/lacrosse and on the varsity baseball infield.
The local share of the project cost is about $6 million and will be paid for with available fund balance and Capital Reserve funds. The remaining cost will be funded with New York State Building Aid. Project design is expected to begin in January.
