The Blaine school board has appointed 12 people to a “facility needs review committee,” which will study the district’s short-term construction, maintenance and infrastructure needs.
Over the next two months, the group will analyze and research, but it won’t necessarily make a recommendation to the school board, Spanjer said.
The group will look at options for replacing the high school grandstand, as well as other projects that would cost less than $1 million and could be completed in the
next five years.
Such projects might include painting and re-roofing school gyms, paving and re-striping parking lots or acquiring property in Birch Bay for future school buildings, Spanjer said in September.
Depending on the committee’s progress, the school board will hold a work session in December or early January to prioritize selected projects.
