STEM Lab Bond Community Engagement

Updated on Mon, 01/23/2017 - 8:27am

Did you know this November’s ballot includes a bond proposal to address aging buildings in Adams 12 Five Star Schools? It includes a major reconstruction of STEM Lab – a K-8 school in your neighborhood. As a neighbor, we value your input. On Wednesday, September 28, STEM Lab hosted neighbors in a discussion of the reconstruction plans to ensure the project works best for students and the neighborhood.  

Topics We Discussed

  • Traffic patterns 
  • Parking
  • Design plans
  • Outdoor spaces/recreation
