From Genesee Valley Central School,
Genesee Valley Central School (GVCS) will be holding a vote on a proposed capital improvement project on Tuesday, December 12.
The proposed $9.8 million project aims to address repairs and renovations required by the New York State-mandated five-year Building Conditions Survey, upgrade facilities to accommodate innovative educational programming, and address building code issues.
The capital improvement project and Energy Performance Contract comprise a single proposition, strategically designed to leverage New York State Building Aid and existing capital reserve funds. This funding model ensures NO ADDITIONAL TAX IMPACT for the local community.
Key Project Highlights:
Facility Enhancements: Renovations include a new exterior basketball court, tennis court reconstruction, pavement replacement, a new library restroom, flooring and ceiling upgrades, roller window shades installation, and improvements to casework. A small on-site pole barn will be constructed to address storage needs.
Bus Garage Renovations: Proposed renovations to the bus garage involve pavement replacement, metal roof upgrades, mechanical improvements, and fiber optic cable upgrades.
Energy Performance Contract: This component incorporates updates to HVAC controls, replacement of aging roof-top HVAC units, installation of water conservation measures, and the replacement of boilers and water heaters to improve efficiency.
“The project aligns with our commitment to promote the maintenance of our world class facilities and our responsibility to provide the most cost-effective learning environment for our students,” stated Dr. Brian Schmitt, Superintendent of GVCS.
To foster community engagement and address any questions, a community meeting is scheduled on December 5 at 6:00 p.m. in the GVCS auditorium. All community members are encouraged to attend, learn more about the project, and participate in an open dialogue.
The community is invited to cast their votes on December 12, from noon to 8:00 p.m. Belmont residents can vote at the GVCS Pool Vestibule, 1 Jaguar Drive, Belmont. Angelica residents Angelica Grange, 49 Park Circle, Angelica.
