    Boren K-8 Meetings

    As part of early discussions, meetings were held with Boren STEM K-8 to have a discussion about whether STEM could move to Schmitz Park so the Boren building could be used as an interim site while other schools are undergoing construction. The community was very against this idea, and at the meeting on Oct. 24, they were told that a move is off the table. The documents below contain comments, questions and answers from two community meetings. June 1, 2017 meeting

    Additional planning information will be posted as available. For BEX IV projects in progress and complete, please visit the BEX website.
