Greenwich Central School District Residents Asked to Vote

On Tuesday, November 14, 2023, Greenwich Central School District will ask residents to authorize the spending of $1.74 million, which includes the use of $800,000 from the Capital Reserve Fund, to complete a capital project that voters approved on March 15, 2022.

The funds will be used to bring the Primary School that houses PreK-2 into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act; reconstruct the Primary School’s main office with a new, secure entrance; and expand the parking area near the tennis courts with 45 new spaces, lighting, and drainage. These items were included in the 2022 capital project, however, when construction bids came back in May 2023 much higher than planned due to escalation costs, the decision was made to postpone that part of the project.

“We were able to complete the majority of items included in the 2022 capital project, but the bids for the Primary School came in too high for us to undertake that portion,” said Greenwich CSD Superintendent Jennifer Steimle. “The project has been approved by voters and the NYS Education Department, however, we need approval from residents to use money the district has already set aside for capital projects in the Capital Reserve Fund and that voters have already
approved for the 2018 and 2022 capital projects.”

Work at the Primary School includes the installation of an elevator to the second floor, which will bring the building into compliance with ADA requirements.

The district will finance the remainder of the capital project with the balances of the 2018 and 2022 capital projects, which have already been financed through bonds, and a portion of the Capital Reserve Fund. Through careful financial planning, there will be no impact on taxpayers.

Residents of Greenwich Central School District will vote on Tuesday, November 14, 2023 from noon to 8 p.m. in the Primary School gymnasium.
