The Sidney Central School District went to the polls Tuesday night to vote on a capital project.
The $8,000,000 project has zero additional tax impact on taxpayers as $7,000,000 will be paid from state funds, and the remaining $1,000,000 will come from the district’s capital reserve.
The project passed 158-77.
This project will increase community usage of the facilities, and is going to create new outdoor learning spaces within the district, including an amphitheater and two classroom pavilions. The elementary school playground is going to get a complete makeover with new equipment that is age appropriate, as well as turf to allow for year-round use.
“We want to thank the community for passing this project,” Sidney Superintendent Eben Bullock said. “This project is exciting because we are opening up many opportunities for our students and staff, as well as giving the community more access to the facilities.
