1 New Elementary School Project Overview of Dept. of Ed Role  Project Review/Approval Cycle Project applications submitted to DOE – June 2004 DOE construction team reviews all applications Review includes site visits/interviews Approval based on identified needs

2 New Elementary School Project FALMOUTH PROJECT SUBMISSIONS (66 school projects submitted State-wide)  Plummer-Motz School – State Rating #34  Middle School – State Rating # 65  Lunt School – State Rating #19 Schools ranked #1-17 receive initial funding

3 New Elementary School Project On The List  Revised DOE List in July 2006 – Additional Projects Approved (gets #19 on list for State funding)  Lunt Project (K-2 School)

4 New Elementary School Project DOE CONSTRUCTION PROCESS PROTOCOL  Build New vs. Renovation of Existing  Existing Site and Space Analysis/Adjacent Districts Analysis  Site Selection and Approval  Education Specifications  Building Concept and Design Approval  September 2008 referendum target

5 New Elementary School Project BUILD NEW vs. RENOVATE/ADDITION  Build New Based on Cost Estimate Comparisons  Project Scope Increased to Solve Elementary School Issues Pre-K to 5  Project Scope and Build New Approved by DOE

6 New Elementary School Project SITE SEARCH AND SELECTION  Current Site Analysis  New Site Search (Town-owned and Private Parcels)

7 New Elementary School Project CURRENT SITE (Lunt/PM)  Site development costs (ledge/slopes/storm water drainage)  Traffic issues/on-site congestion/proximity to roads  Student relocation/disruption/cost  Trail system disruption (requires re-location in kind per Federal grant)  Cost-benefit analysis (relocation $$ and educational disruption)  DOE not convinced best site for investment of State $$

8 New Elementary School Project NEW SITE SEARCH (considerations)  Availability  Purchasing and Development Costs  Suitability  Location/Sprawl Concerns  Need DOE “buy in”

9 New Elementary School Project Non-Town owned sites  Identified 13 parcels for further investigation (met minimum search criteria)  Advertised publicly for available land  Contacted identified parcel owners directly  Two sites available for sale, additional site would consider  Available parcels investigated, but eliminated from further consideration based on necessary site criteria guidelines (road access/shape of site/proximity to other schools)

10 New Elementary School Project Town Sites  All Town parcels reviewed/considered  Only HS/MS campus and Supt. Office parcel (Central Campus) met search criteria (size and shape, access to utilities & water, location, topography, etc.) and availability

11 New Elementary School Project CENTRAL CAMPUS (HS/MS Location)  Town-owned property (no site acquisition cost)  Efficiencies gained (education/operations)  Addresses existing traffic/safety concerns (MS/Woodville Rd.)  No student relocation issues during construction  DOE supportive of further investigation (estimate site development costs)

12 New Elementary School Project CONCERNS BEING ADDRESSED  Traffic (road improvements/student drop- off improvements/turning lanes/on-site road flow)  Fields (replacement plan/no loss of fields)  Grade K-12 on same campus (benefit for educational programming and itinerant staff).

13 New Elementary School Project CENTRAL CAMPUS (Superintendent’s Location)  Town-owned property (may complicate property transfer of RSU consolidation plan)  Efficiencies gained (more limited than MS/HS site)  Addresses existing traffic/safety concerns (MS/Woodville Rd.) but to lesser extent than MS/HS site design  No student relocation issues during construction  DOE supportive of further investigation (estimate site development costs)

14 New Elementary School Project CONCERNS REMAINING (Superintendent’s Site)  Traffic (design improvements more limited)  Efficiencies not maximized (2 campuses)  Proximity to Woodlands neighborhood  Management of stormwater (retention/treatment)  Grade K-12 on same campus (youngest students needing to access main campus via crossing road)  Wetlands impact  Limited parking  “Force fit” design

15 New Elementary School Project Ongoing Work of Committee/Architect/DOE  Site Assessment – Comparative Costs HS/MS Campus Site Superintendent’s Site  Traffic/Fields  Educational Program Specifications

16 New Elementary School Project TIMELINE/NEXT STEPS  Public Forum #4 (Straw Poll for Site Approval – March 5th, FHS at 7 PM)  Educational Specifications – Spring ‘08  Building Concept Design – Summer ‘08  Referendum (Sept 2008)  Effort to stay on timeline for Fall 2011 occupancy

17 New Elementary School Project Keeping in Touch With the Process  Building Committee communication s (sign on to School Board list serve at  School Construction information link at above website  Local newspaper articles/agendas  Principal notes  Local TV (agendas/live meeting broadcasts)
