New Master Plan for Tam Facilities

By Kendall Lafranchi

A District Facilities Master Plan Town Hall Meeting was held on January 26 at Redwood High School. The Master Plan determined the scope of repairs, modernization, upgrades, needed to accommodate the district’s projected student growth.

The concerns addressed in Tam’s plan were additional classroom space, teacher work spaces, and parking. Architecture firm LPA proposed a new arts center located in the current back parking lot, in addition to a three-level parking structure with a six-court tennis complex on top. The structure would be built where the current courts and pool parking lot currently reside.

If the plan is approved in May, the school board will still need to send out a Request for Proposal, choose an architect, and get funding for the project, which could take years.
