Knox School Board to Hold Public Hearing on Building Project Tonight

The first of two official public hearings over Knox Community Schools’ proposed building project will be held tonight.

Plans call for the demolition of the elementary school’s Palmer Wing, and the construction of a new addition extending south from the newer portion of the school. The high school would get a couple additions on its north side to house vocational programs and a multipurpose room.

Project officials will review the plans, discuss the need for the project, and explain its financial impact, before members of the public will have the chance to offer comments.

In other business tonight, the Cheryl Lyn Welter Family Charitable Foundation will present a grant to the school corporation. A presentation is also expected from the Knox Park Board. Tonight’s Knox School Board meeting starts at 6:30 in the Knox Schools Administrative Office.
