|A rendering of the North Redmond Elementary School|
Redmond, Wash. – As the city of Redmond’s population grows, so does the need for school space to accommodate students. A new elementary school in north Redmond will help relieve overcrowding in the city’s current elementary schools. The district’s April 2016 bond measure, which passed with a 66.28% approval rate, is the source of funding for this project.
Community members are invited to attend an open house meeting about the new school. The community meeting will take place , from , Redmond City Hall, Council Chambers, 15670 NE 85th St., Redmond, Wash. This community meeting is being held in conjunction with the city of Redmond.
The meeting will provide a general overview of the project, including the site layout, overall look of the building, basic materials, traffic patterns and building schedule. The information incorporates feedback from the first community meeting on the project, held at Redmond High School in May. The district will seek feedback on the revised plans. Attendees can come at any time during the two-hour timeframe of the open house style meeting.
Attendance boundaries for this school will be determined in the year before it opens. A public process will seek community input into the new boundaries. No information on which students will attend the school will be available until that time.
Construction on the new elementary school is scheduled to start in April 2017. Planned opening for the school is in September 2018.
