The Liberty Center Local Board of Education is asking residents for their input and thoughts about the location of a proposed new pre-kindergarten through grade 12 school.
On Tuesday night, many showed up at a meeting to offer just that.
The first 85 minutes of the school board’s meeting Tuesday evening was allotted exclusively for public comment, and that entire time was filled with questions and discussion from the audience.
The bulk of the discussion centered on the two major options — Option Black, a one-story building located on an undetermined generic new site; and Option Orange, a two-story building located on the existing school property.
Both facilities would have an area of about 151,000 square feet and cost nearly $37 million. The Ohio Facilities Construction Commission has committed to fund 64 percent of the non-locally funded initiatives, or about $23.4 million of that total cost.
But a third option has surfaced called the “Tiger Plan.” It is much like Option Orange, but without constructing swing space to hold classes during the building process.
The board has scheduled a special meeting for Dec. 6 at 6:30 p.m for further discussion.
