At the meeting on December 13 VMDO architects presented significant revisions to their original four schemes, including one which partially demolishes the existing curved building and builds a three story addition.
Below are images of the new schemes–more detailed information is at the pdf linked at the bottom of this page.
Citizens participants seemed to favor the “partial replacement” scheme. APS would have good reason to prefer the “standalone” scheme because it would get an entirely new school plus the existing facility intact. The “east” scheme is the cheapest, followed by South B.
Lots to consider here. The next meeting of the committees will be January 10. If you have any questions or comments direct them to APS or to Mike O’Malley or Dianne Hasselman
