Springfield school facilities plan considered

SPRINGFIELD — A $24.6 million school facilities plan was recently presented to a Springfield Public School facility task force and school board.

The plan includes safety and security updates, locker room renovation, a fitness/wellness addition, cafeteria expansion, music classrooms, and a second-floor walking track and theater support space.

Reasons given for doing the project now is that the school district is debt free, there is a low local tax burden, interest rates remain at historic lows and the project qualifies for ag to school property tax relief.

A community survey will be sent to school district residents in the coming weeks.
