Green Island voters approve $1.6 million capital project

Dec. 15, 2020

On Tuesday, Dec. 15, Green Island Union Free School District voters approved the district’s $1.6 million capital project referendum by a margin of 52 to 2.

The project includes a number of health and safety improvements, as well as restorations to the building infrastructure that will reduce future maintenance needs. The capital project will provide no tax increase to the Green Island taxpayers.

Highlights of the project include:

  • Build a playground on the school grounds
    • Two areas: One suited for PreK-grade 1; Another for grades 2 and older
  • A main entrance that meets ADA accessibility
  • Door and hardware replacements to meet current safety and code requirements
  • A new phone and security system
  • Restoring exposed concrete foundation walls
  • Brick masonry restoration

“Thank you to all of the Green Island voters for continually supporting our students through this capital project,” said Superintendent of Schools Kimberly Ross. “We value our partnerships with our families and community and these restorations are crucial for our building envelope and infrastructure. I can’t wait to see our students playing on their brand new playground!”

Construction is slated to begin in the summer of 2022.
