Residents of the Bath Central School District in New York State have voted in favor of a $42.5 million capital improvement project. The proposal, which passed with 80% approval, including 234 yes votes to 57 no, will include a series of upgrades and renovations to the district’s buildings and infrastructure.
The project will focus on security enhancements and data network improvements, as well as renovations to school buildings and upgrades to athletic fields, district offices, bus garages, sidewalks and HVAC work, with a goal of ensuring compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The school district has said that the project will not result in any additional tax impact for residents, with the costs being funded through a combination of the district’s existing capital reserve fund and state aid.
The school district plans to begin construction in 2024 with the goal of completing the project by February 2026.
