Community vote on $43.7 million Auburn schools capital project set this week

Voters in the Auburn Enlarged City School District this week will decide the fate of a proposed $43.7 million capital project that would include health and safety upgrades in each of its seven instructional buildings and the administrative headquarters.

District residents will be able to vote for the proposed project on Tuesday at Casey Park Elementary School and Seward Elementary School. Superintendent Jeff Pirozzolo said if a person has gone to the Casey Park school for the district’s annual budget vote in the past, they would cast their vote at Casey Park Tuesday. Those who have voted at any other school in the past would vote at Seward.

The proposed project would have two phases, with a first phase slated to cost $28 million and the remaining balance in the second phase. The proposal is the result of years-long process triggered by a state-required buildings condition assessment completed in 2015-16. The district’s most recent capital project involving all district facilities was approved by voters in 2011.
