Thank you to all those who participated in our 2-part Middle School Location/Design Community Workshop! As promised, we created a community page on our website including participant input from discussions around rebuild priorities. We also created a voting feature so you can vote for YOUR middle school rebuild priority. Check it out and vote here! This Community Page has been shared with the Superintendent and School Board. Also, here's the workshop coverage by the Concord Monitor.
Moving forward Concord Greenspace will:
Monitor the School District's progress towards location selection for the new Middle School.
Urge the School District to build on existing infrastructure to make the most of our city's investments in roads, bridges, water pipes, and other infrastructure, while strengthening Concord's tax base, protecting green space, increasing walkable neighborhoods, and preventing sprawl.
Urge the School District to include voices from Concord's underserved communities in the process of site location, design, and funding.
Encourage a robust and transparent public engagement process.
