Lee Pollard of HY Architects delivered a presentation on plans to modernize the Benicia Middle School campus at Thursday’s school board meeting.
The project is one of many to be funded by Measure S, an initiative approved by Benicia voters in 2014 to provide $49.6 million in bond funding to be spent on facilities at district schools. As noted in an earlier presentation by Bond Director Roxanne Egan, 11 projects have been completed so far with another currently under construction: the renovation of the track and field at Benicia High School.
There are three projects that are scheduled to begin this summer: fire alarm upgrades at Benicia High, districtwide solar updates and the first phase of a remodel of the BMS campus. Egan had presented initial plans at a November board meeting, and after district staff met with architects to determine the best fit for a new campus, revised plans were presented on Thursday.
