Residents of the school district in the exempt village of Milford have until Monday, June 10 to participate in a special online exchange of views on what should happen in the wake of a failed bond issue for a $ 98 million construction plan.
Voters turned down the proposed $ 4.7 million bond issue in May. It would have funded a new college to replace the current college, a 1,000-seat auditorium shared by the high school and new college, and other improvements to the high school and its stadium.
Between today and June 10 at 8 p.m., residents can use their laptops or cellphones to share their thoughts on the bond issue and review and rate the thoughts of others on Thoughtexchange.
The process will allow the school district to identify common themes and determine what is most important to the community.
“After the May issue was defeated, we know we need to listen and involve the community in the planning process,” said Superintendent Nancy House.
The school district is also in the process of creating the community advisory team to form a consensus on a plan for its buildings to present to the school board.
The advisory team will make its recommendation after reviewing the school district’s current construction plan, hearing from industry experts, reviewing the results of the Thoughtexchange survey, and hosting community forums.
