Capital Improvement Project 2020

In an effort to be environmentally and fiscally conscious of paper use and consumption, documents are available as digital sets.

Summary of Capital Project 2015 - 2020:

In 2015, Avon CSD contracted with Ashley McGraw Architects to complete the NYSED mandated Building Conditions Survey. Our Facility Planning Committee, a team of over fifteen community members, parents, staff, administrators, and strategic partners, reviewed the survey which totaled over $15 million in repairs and maintenance. The most critical areas to address;

  • Sections of ES & HS Roofs

  • Storage

  • Transportation Building, Bus Lift, and Secure Bus Parking

  • Auditorium

  • Intercoms

  • ES, MS, and District Office Main Entrances

The total cost of the repairs and improvements was estimated at $6,900,000, including the use of approximately $1,000,000 from Avon CSD's Capital Improvement Reserve Fund, with NO ADDITIONAL TAX IMPACT. The Public Hearing was held on November 19th, 2018, and residents voted on the proposed project on December 11, 2018. The project passed with a 152 YES - 31 NO vote.

"On December 11, 2018, the Avon Community voted 152 YES - 31 NO in support of the $6.9 million capital improvement project as outlined below.  Special thanks to the facility committee, Board of Education, strategic partners, Director of Buildings and Grounds Mr. Tom LaGrou, and Business Official Kristen Murphy for hours of input and planning to create this project.  Also, thank you to the residents of Avon for your approval and support.  It remains clear that you put our children first and prioritize their needs through actions such as this.  The work that will be completed as a result of your support will add much-needed layers of safety and security to our buildings along with maintenance that will keep our facilities functioning at peak performance for years to come."
