Fillmore Central to upgrade parking lots


Fri, Apr 25th, 2014
Posted in Harmony Education

The parking lots at both the high school in Harmony and the elementary school in Preston will soon be completely renovated. During the school board meeting on April 22, board member Craig Britton showed the board a diagram of the Preston site with the parking lot renovations marked. There will be 60 parking spaces added to the east side, or the front of the school. He has spoken with the city of Preston, and there is a policy that parking must be set back 10 feet from the property line. He said they don’t know for sure where the property line is, but if there is a problem, they can always ask for a variance.

There will also be 11 parking spaces added to the north side of the building. The spaces will be used for parents dropping off and picking up their kids from SAC and daycare. The parking lot on the south side and the front driveway will be reclaimed and repaved. The back lot, which is now gravel, will be paved as well. There will also be work done to improve the storm sewer to help with drainage issues.

There was some discussion about the front driveway, which is always congested during drop-off and pick-up times. There will be no parking allowed in that driveway, as the buses will be going through there.

Community Ed. Report

Community Education Director Angi Kaase gave the board an annual update. The daycare currently has 80 kids, and Kaase said they are looking at expanding in the future. There are 79 students registered for SAC, and summer registration is now open.

The school readiness fees will stay the same next year but they are looking at increasing the cost the year after. They will be increasing transportation costs. There are 33 students in the school readiness program. Preschool registrations for next year were sent out to families.

Kaase said the ECFE program has been growing. They had three winter classes and three spring classes, with 24 families participating.

The summer rec. staff was hired, and events will be starting June 9.

Electric Signs

Superintendent Richard Keith told the board about the electric signs that will be going up in Harmony and Preston. The sign at the high school in Harmony will be a community sign; the Harmony Foundation has donated $15,000 toward the cost. Fillmore Central will pay the rest of the cost (about $3,000) and the cost of installation. There will also be a sign that is just for th .....
