Facility and Land Use Planning
The Arrowhead School Board began the process of studying the land and facility use needs, for the entire campus, in January of 2008. During that time, significant efforts were implemented to gather and study information. The following provides a summary and history of this process:
- The Facility and Land Use Master Planning process began in 2008 with the commissioning of the Facility and Enrollment Projection Report that was presented in May of 2009 by Eppstein Uhen Architects (EUA).
- The School Board sanctioned the Facilities Community Task Force (FCT) to study the facilities and land use needs. The FCT met twice per month from October 2010 through April 2011. The team presented their culminating report to the School Board in May 2011.
- School Perceptions, an independent research firm, conducted a community survey in the fall of 2011 and presented the findings to the School Board in November 2011.
- The School Board engaged EUA to develop preliminary plans and costings for the development of a Center for the Arts. The School Board decided at the time not to move forward with the plan due in part to the financial impact and the financial recession at the time.
- The School Board approved Kapur and Associates to conduct a site-survey for the district, whose report was presented to the School Board in fall of 2013.
- The School Board sanctioned EUA and Miron Construction to develop alternative Center for the Arts options on the North Campus (using current facilities and adjacent land), along with developing plans for the property north of Highway K.
- Based on community input from the School Perceptions survey results, and the economic recession at the time, the School Board decided not to move forward with a referendum, but to table the work and plans for a future year.
