PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- Happy holidays Port Chester students, parents -- and voters. Property owners in the Port Chester/Rye Union Free School District will be asked to approve spending $41.5 million on a newly-revised renovation project on Dec. 22.
The vote will take place from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. in the Port Chester Middle School gymnasium. Details on the project can be found as reported in a Superintendent's letter posted online here.
As previously reported , the district proposed a bond cost of $63 million dollars. The total cost has been reduced to $41.5 million.
The revised plan retains the proposed expansion of Port Chester High School and improvements for each elementary school. The planetarium at Port Chester Middle School has gained an upgrade under the revised plan.
A proposed fifth-grade addition to Port Chester Middle School has been cut from the current plan due to cost and traffic concerns.
To address elementary school overcrowding, the Board directed the administration to immediately start looking into options for additional classroom space.
The vote on the proposed bond was originally scheduled for Dec. 1.
