The Victor Central School District is considering an acquisition.
The former YMCA building is located near the school district’s campus and would go a long way to dealing with the need for added instructional space, officials say.
It’s a 5,080-square-foot building.
The Victor Central School District is one of the only ones in the Finger Lakes region that has been growing, instead of shrinking, over the last two decades. And it’s not growing slowly.
The growth of the Farmington, Canandaigua, and Victor areas has resulted in significant growth to the Victor Central School District.
Now, the district says its at capacity.
“There’s a strong probability – but not a certainty – that we will have increasing enrollment in the next few years because housing continues to develop, especially in the town of Farmington,” Superintendent Tim Terranova said at a recent meeting.
The cost of the building would be $425,000 to purchase. The total investment in the property would be around $2.5 million compared to $4.5 million to build new.
A vote is scheduled for Friday, October 7 from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Primary School gym. Voters have to approve the purchase now that the school board has authorized it.
