NAPERVILLE, IL – The Naperville School District 203 Education Committee will vote on October 18 on the first phase of a proposed five-year capital improvement plan for the district’s schools.
The plan would cost around $ 6 million each year, for a total cost of $ 30 million, said Pat Dolan, the district’s director of buildings and grounds, in a presentation to the education committee at its Monday night meeting.
The 2022-2023 phase would include several HVAC-related projects to fix mechanical system failures, particularly at Meadow Glens Elementary School and Lincoln Junior High School, Dolan said. The projects would also replace systems that are at or near the end of their lifespan.
The first phase of the project includes a capacitor replacement and relocation at Meadow Glens and River Woods elementary schools, a boiler replacement in Lincoln, and a boiler addition at Kennedy Junior High School, Dolan said in his presentation.
These projects will cost $ 1.3 million, window and door replacements at Washington Junior High School will cost $ 850,000, and roof, floor, and asphalt work on multiple schools will cost $ 1.57 million the Daily Herald reported.
Future projects include a new stadium scoreboard at Naperville North High School and a complete renovation of that school’s tennis courts, Dolan said.
Existing plans are subject to change as District 203 Superintendent Dan Bridges described the five-year plan as “a working, living document that is subject to change” based on need or changes in programming or direction.
