In 1999, Knox Community School Board members were reviewing plans for a proposed $15 million renovation project of Knox Middle School.

One of the biggest concerns was moving the football field to the high school.

Costs were totaled after adding the new addition, renovation, demolition of the existing building, site work, new football field, track, concession building, restrooms, and locker rooms.

After architectural fees, soft costs and financing were figured in, the total came to almost $19 million.

It was reported that the tax impact would be 68 cents per $100 of assessed value of the debt service.

Gary Watkins of Barton, Coe, Vilamaa pointed out that the project was still in the talking stage at that time.
