Public hearing for capital improvement project set for Nov. 16

On Tuesday, December 14, Mayfield Central School District residents will vote on a $7.1 million capital improvement project that addresses a number of infrastructure maintenance items. It also includes renovations and upgrades to improve efficiency, ensure the safety of the school community, and provide a 21st century learning environment for students.

Polls will be open from noon to 8 p.m. in the gymnasium lobby at Mayfield Junior-Senior High School, 27 School Street, Mayfield.

The public is invited to attend the district board meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, November 16, for a public hearing on the improvements. The meeting will include an overview of the project followed by a forum during which members of the public can ask questions about the improvement plans. Details about the meeting location and whether it will be held in person or remotely will be posted on the district website in the days leading up to the meeting.

A majority of the items included in the capital improvement project address issues with aging infrastructure that building conditions surveys have identified at both school buildings and the bus garage.

In addition to those maintenance items, the project includes some classroom renovations that align with the district’s goals of preparing students for career and college by creating spaces for the expansion of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) programming.

The last time the Mayfield schools underwent extensive improvements was following a capital project vote in 2016.
