QUEENSBURY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The Queensbury Union Free School District has proposed a $19.9 million capital improvement project for their school facilities. School district residents will vote on the proposal on December 14.

The proposed project will address improvements district-wide. This includes updates to aging infrastructure throughout the district’s school buildings like roofs and boilers.

“We believe our community deserves top-quality facilities. If approved, this project would benefit every student, staff member, caregiver, and community member who walks through our doors. We’re proud to present an investment in our infrastructure that includes standard maintenance work, a new turf field, and upgrades to our pool and transportation facilities with no tax impact for our community members,” said Superintendent of Schools, Kyle Gannon.

Renovations include:

  • a turf field for football, baseball, lacrosse, soccer and other sports
  • Queensbury Elementary School pool upgrades
  • Playground replacement at William H. Barton Intermediate School
  • Science classroom upgrades at Queensbury Middle School
  • Bus lift replacement at the transportation building

New York State Aid will cover approximately 70% of the district’s expenditures to offset the cost of these improvements.
