Danbury bond vote next week on school construction, improvements

Danbury residents will be voting next week on a more than $200 million school bond package, with the bulk of the funding for the proposed Danbury Career Academy.  The Proposed Bond Referendum for June 7th contains two separate questions for the significant new construction and improvements for the Danbury School District Facilities and grounds.  Danbury residents are being asked to sign off on $164 million for the Danbury Career Academy Bond and $43.9 million for district wide improvements.  State reimbursement of 80-percent of eligible costs on the Career Academy and 60-percent on the renovations would lower the direct impact on taxpayers.  The proposal calls for buying little more than 30 acres of land, the former Cartus site, and renovating the building.  The district wide improvements are for an elevator at Hayestown Elementary, DHS Phase 1 accreditation, a roof for King Street Primary, DHS ADA compliance, and Pre-K Center/Early Childhood Center.  DHS renovations include code compliance improvements to science laboratories, the nurse suite and bathrooms.
