District projects rank at top of Londonderry schools spending plan
During Wednesday night’s Planning Board meeting, Peter Curro, the district’s business administrator, said the goal is to obtain a $5 million bond to address major structural concerns such as paving, roofing and boiler replacement in 2015.
“This is what we’ll need to fund all those facility projects that have been postponed for several years,” he added.
Curro said the middle school’s parking lot needs to be addressed soon or there could be larger problems down the road.
According to planning staff member John Vogl, the CIP is intended to cover municipal and school projects costing $100,000 or more.
Curro said a $3.1 million new School Administrative Unit (SAU) office is being targeted for fiscal year 2016.
The project, rated a Priority 2, would be necessary by then as the district is fast outgrowing its current location next door to the town municipal offices, Curro said.
Curro added that the project wouldn’t likely be eligible for state building aid.
“For the condition this building is in right now, it’s just not worth it,” Curro said. “It’s almost like having an old car that you keep throwing more money into and that money gets wasted.”
“This building was really designed as a temporary solution,” Curro said. “When it was built we’d always intended to go somewhere else eventually”
