Proposed capital improvement project


On Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018, Monroe-
Woodbury residents will be asked to vote on a proposed 8.4 million dollar capital
improvement project. This project would have zero tax impact. The proposal
includes replacement of the aging cooling system at the high school and
significant improvements to district athletic facilities. The aging cooling
tower and chiller are in need of immediate replacement. Significant
upgrades to the athletic facilities on the main campus are also a part of the
proposed project. Two grass fields would be replaced with multi-purpose
artificial turf fields. Additionally, the softball field would be relocated. The
existing track would be replaced with a regulation eight lane running track that
includes steeplechase and additional jumping event areas. The project would be funded through a combination of sources including: 4.4 million dollars from the
district’s Capital reserve Fund (or savings) and four million dollars in
bonds. The district would be reimbursed for up to five point eight million
dollars through the New York State Building Aid Program. Since state aid
would exceed the cost of borrowing, there would be no tax impact to
Monroe-Woodbury residents. If approved by voters, project work would begin in the
spring of 2019 and is expected to be completed before the start of the 2019-
2020 school year. Residents are encouraged to email questions to
[email protected] Questions and answers will be posted on the district website. The capital improvement project vote will be held on Tuesday,
October 23rd, 2018, from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Central Valley Elementary School, 45
Route 32, Central Valley, New York. Visit www.mw.k12.ny.us for regular updates on the proposal. [music playing]
