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

Feedback

Community members provided feedback through group discussion and a survey.

Survey Results

  • When asked to rank priority items when considering a reconstruction process, the community ranked the following: 
    1. Traffic/Parking
    2. Student Safety
    3. Outdoor/Recration Space
    4. Building Appearance
    5. Classroom Space
    6. Construction Timeline
  • When asked to determine which proposed building layout, out of two options, best addressed their priority rankings, the following option won the majority of votes:

Next Steps

Feedback from community members and parents will be integrated into the plan as appropriate. A future community meeting will be held post-election at a date to be determined.
