Richland School District Asks for Input on Construction Designs

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.-- The Richland School District is working with architects to finalize designs to rebuild three elementary schools and they want your input.

There are three schools that voters approved to rebuild when they passed a $98 million bond in February.

Thursday night the Richland School Board will review designs for Marcus Whitman, Sacajawea and Lewis and Clark elementary schools.

Some of the items to be discussed include classroom sizes and the layout of rooms by subject and grade.

The board hopes people will share their opinions so they can incorporate them into the plans before they move on to the next phase.

"It's important that people come tonight to the meeting so we can hear from them, they can ask questions, get their overall impressions on the design and the site. If they have some good ideas, we're going to want to hear about them," said Steve Aagaard, Richland School District spokesperson.

Each school will follow a prototype design and increase each school size by about 20,000 feet. The buildings will also be two stories tall.

Construction will break ground next April through June and the schools are scheduled to be finished by fall 2015.

Tuesday night's meeting will be at the district's administration building at 7 pm.

    KENNEWICK: Good news for all of you bargain shoppers out there, Goodwill is opening a brand new store in Kennewick sometime next year.
