By a vote of 2,836 in favor to 653 against, voters Tuesday approved the Reimagine Greece capital improvement project, designed to reshape the Greece Central School District.
The $107 million project includes a new, larger transportation facility, security upgrades at all school buildings and renovations to classrooms.
The athletic facilities will also be renovated to include new outdoor lighting and synthetic turf at all hour high schools.
“We are so excited by the support shown today for our Reimagine Greece project,” said Superintendent Kathleen Graupman.
The project is being paid for using state funds and money already in reserve in the district, so school taxes will not increase.
With voter approval secured, the next step is to select an architect and engineering firm to design the project components. Priority safety projects, like the installation of double entry vestibules at every school, could begin as soon as the summer of 2019. Most Reimagine Greece project work is not expected to begin until 2021 with completion targeted for 2025. — ROCHESTER FIRST
