• At Goshen Middle School there will be $540,000 for a physical education/fitness room and renovations, including $490,000 to remodel the pool and lockers areas for a band room; $130,000 to remodel the orchestra area for special education classrooms; and the addition and remodeling of the kitchen and cafe for $1.1 million.
• At either the high school or middle school location, a new competition swimming pool facility will be built at a cost of $10 million.
The site for the new pool has yet to be determined. School officials decided not to spend money on design or site studies until completion of the referendum.
“Once the architects and contractors look at both sites, they will make recommendations and give us cost estimates for each site,” Troup said last month. “This will also determine whether it will be a freestanding building or attached (to one of the schools).”
Woodworth estimates the new pool will save the corporation $125,000 annually on maintenance costs. The current pool at Goshen High School was completed in 1961 and the pool at the middle school was built in 1991.
Now that the referendum has been approved, Woodworth said the school board will appoint a technical review committee during its meeting Monday and the design-build work will begin.
After that committee has been formed, an architect and contractor team will be selected from their proposals and drawings that have been submitted, she added.
