West renovation would not address gym needs
West Elementary Gym
Lacy Garrison photo At the School Board meeting on Thursday evening, it was estimated it would take an additional $1.3 million to renovate West Elementarys gymnasium.
After looking at different options since the last School Board meeting, architect Allen Hill of Upland Design Group presented an overall plan Thursday evening for West Elementary renovations. The School Board is still attempting to evenly split the $6 million allotted by Warren County government between Bobby Ray and West Elementary.During the presentation, Hill addressed the main points of concern moving forward, including constructing a new kitchen, cafeteria area and toilet space, and renovating the existing toilet area. Additionally, the existing kitchen would become a computer lab, the existing dining room would become the library and the existing library would be converted into a full-sized classroom.
