Voters in the Central High School District of Westosha will be able to vote on a referendum on April 6.

The district is seeking approval to spend up to $39.6 million to fund building improvements. This includes: Safety and security improvements, construction of additions for a cafeteria, gymnasium, locker rooms and classrooms; renovating and facility improvements, including modernizing classrooms and learning spaces, converting the existing cafeteria into an auditorium and the existing locker rooms into a weight room/fitness center; building systems and infrastructure updates; site improvements; and acquisition of furnishing, fixtures and equipment.

Tax impact is estimated to be an additional 59 cents/$1,000 of assessed value over the current tax rate. That would result in an annual cost of $118 to property owners of a $200,000 home in the district.

On Monday, the district hosted a public information meeting on the referendum issue. Here is video of the presentation, lead by district administrator John Gendron, and some questions and answers afterwards:

The district has another public informational meeting scheduled for 6:30 p.m., March 11 at the school cafeteria. That meeting also will be available as a live stream (click here at time of meeting to view stream).
