LYNDONVILLE – School district residents will vote on Feb. 13, determining whether a proposed $10.7 million capital project will go forward.

School officials will have a public hearing at 6 p.m. on Monday (Jan.9) on the project. That meeting will be at the Lyndonville Middle-High School Library on Housel Avenue.

The project includes many improvements at the Housel Avenue campus, and doesn’t include any work at the now closed former elementary school.

Lyndonville already has its local share of the project set aside in reserve funds so no additional local money will be needed to pay for the project, said Jason Smith, the district superintendent.

The projects identified include roof work, new air-conditioning (currently only 1/3 of school has AC), interior renovations (including removing a wall and adding two classrooms), lighting improvements, and site work that will add parking spaces and improve traffic flow. It will also add a clearly designated drop-off spot for parents taking their children to school.

The athletic fields will also be improved with drainage, new dugouts, fencing and electric service.

Voting on Feb. 13 will be from noon to 7 p.m. in the auditorium lobby at the school.
