Greetings District Residents,
This Capital Project newsletter is designed to provide you with information about the upcoming Capital Project Vote that is scheduled for Tuesday, December 13, 2022. The proposed project would be fully-funded, utilizing New York State (NYS) building aid and the Capital Reserve Fund that was established in May 2022. Therefore, there will be no tax impact to district residents for the project.
Decisions made by the planning committee for this project kept our students in mind, along with ensuring fiscal responsibility to our taxpayers. We focused on the following three areas: keeping our schools safe, enhancing and increasing educational opportunities for our students, and ensuring our buildings and grounds, including The Woodlands, are in outstanding condition for many years to come.
The timing of the planning and construction comes when we can maximize state aid dollars to maintain zero tax impact. We scheduled a December vote for this project, so that once approved, it allows time for our architects and construction management team to prepare plans that need to be sent to the NYS Education Department (NYSED). Since this process takes several months, we want to act now, so that we can get needed approvals and begin the bidding process for this work. Our aim would be for construction to begin in the summer of 2024.
Thank you for reviewing our project details in this newsletter. You can also find more information on our district website at Capital Project (holleycsd.org)
. We appreciate your continued interest and support of our students’ education and the successful future of Holley CSD. We encourage you to vote on December 13, 2022.
