The Region 9 school board has set a date for a referendum on the $3.27 million bond request for the design and construction of various athletic stadium improvements at Joel Barlow High School. Redding's share of the allocation is about 55-percent based on population in the school. Easton will pick up the rest.
The referendum will be September 24.
There were less than a dozen people at the public hearing earlier this week about the project which includes money for soil testing, landscaping and improvements to the nearby parking lot.
