The Building Committee unanimously voted on 9/17/18 against a motion to reconsider the project’s Preferred Design Option. Read Building Committee Chair Jeff Thielman’s opening remarks. At the same meeting, the Committee saw preliminary plans for the site (including the front green and other green spaces), which will be presented to the public at the Forum on 9/24/18.
Arlington needs a new high school because of increasing enrollment and an outdated facility that does not meet today’s educational needs. In June 2018, the AHS Building Committee selected a new construction Preferred Design Concept for the future high school.
Join us at our next community forum on September 24, 7-9pm, Town Hall.
The project entered the Schematic Design phase in August. More detailed designs will be developed during this period. Future decisions will include interior layout, exterior look and feel, and programs included. Community input will be solicited at multiple public forums this fall and winter.
The design concept was carefully chosen based on a variety of factors including educational fit, layout, sustainability, construction timeline, cost and disruption for students. It is important to note that the current drawings are not final designs, and all costs are preliminary.
