Rushford-Peterson continues school design plans; debates official district newspaper


By Kirsten Zoellner

Mon, Mar 2nd, 2015

The Tuesday, February 24 R-P School Board meeting had a limited agenda, but was full of discussion. Early on, New School Initiative Project Artchitect Dean Beeninga, of ATS&R, laid out progress on school pre-design and answered questions on an alternative site and road relocation.

The R-P Design Team is in its third round of meetings since the referendum passed last November. According to Beeninga, the team has been discussing relationships of what will be located near what in the new facility, as well as amenities, the district office, entry points, student drop-off location, and parking for staff, students, and visitors. “We’re working basically on trying to control the size of the building; working within the budget,” noted Beeninga. “It’s a check and balance of sound educational programming and having a facility that will work now and ten years from now.”

The team is also working with ATS&R to work within the components of the site; namely a setback to the north and a standing easement on the south and east sides of the parcel. “We’re meeting every two weeks, trying to keep the big picture in mind; looking at the whole picture within the budget. We’re planning this building to last 50 to 80 years. We’re trying to get people to look at what education will become; designing the building for things now and in the future,” continued Beeninga.

Board Director Taylor Peterson sought clarification from Beeninga on several rumored items of the facility design. Road relocation of Eiken Drive, which will separate the new school from student parking, has been a talking point since prior to the vote and Beeninga noted that the design team had considered it, taking it as far as speaking with the City of Rushford and the Rushford Planning Commission. “That’s not the path we’re going on now,” noted Beeninga. Initial studies by ATS&R show that the roadway is not high traffic and that to move the road would be cost prohibitive for the district. Options for a tunnel or walking bridge are also not being considered, according to Beeninga. “It doesn’t seem wise at this point.”

The district has looked at an alternative south, 17 acre parcel for the facility, east of the athletic complex. However, early calculations show that approximately 116,000 cubic yards of fill, at a cost of roughly $3 million would be required to make that site feasible. Soil borings on the site have not been d .....
