Many of you are probably wondering, "Where are the bulldozers and construction workers?" Don't fear, they are on the way but before they get here, there are a few steps we must complete before we break ground. After all the hard work you put forth into seeing this levy pass, we want to ensure every dollar is spent accurately. On Monday, February 26, 2018, the Richmond Heights Board of Education met to hear an update on the construction project. At that time the Financial Team (listed below) presented the funding strategy for the project and the Construction Team (listed below) shared the next steps in the construction timeline.
The board along with the Mayor of Richmond Heights and some city council members learned about construction methods, timelines, legal obligations and processes. There are teams in place that will oversee various aspects of the project. We have their names and websites listed here for you to review. On Saturday, March 3rd the same information was shared with the community by the superintendent at the first Construction Community Update Meeting. As these meetings are planned, you will be notified in advance so make sure you are subscribed to our newsletters and following us on social media.
