Northfield Schools Master Facilities Plan Public Meetings in August and September

Northfield Public Schools.jpg

The Northfield Public Schools hosted 18 stakeholder meetings last Fall with staff and community members to begin the process of creating a long-term Master Facilities Plan for the District. During the Winter of 2014-15, district staff worked with ATS&R, an architectural firm, to review community feedback and create a series of approaches to be considered for the long-term Master Facilities plan. The District will be hosting a series of meetings in late August and September 2015 regarding the next steps in developing a long-term Master Facilities Plan.

All meetings will begin with an overview presentation. Small groups will discuss the positive aspects of each approach, the concerns they might have about each approach, and suggestions for alternative approaches. The District will use feedback gathered at these meetings to determine which approaches to further investigate to include in the long-term Master Facilities Plan. Meetings are being held at each school in the District, but the content will be the same at every meeting. Each meeting will be held from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm. The following is a list of the community meetings:

·       August 25: Northfield High School • Media Center
