Community Focus Groups for design input to be held mid-August
In mid-August please look for invitations and advertisements from the District to participate in several focus group
meetings to gather community input for various design elements for the new Gib
Olinger K-3 building and the new Grove Athletic complex. The Bond Project Team, comprised of District Administrative Staff, Project Manager Wenaha Group and Design Team Architects West and Opsis Architecture, need your input to help develop building and site designs that meet the specific needs of the Milton-Freewater community. Focus groups will be broken down into various areas that will require direct meetings with stakeholder groups that best understand these needs and can assist in visioning the best possible solutions for the proposed projects.
The goal of these focus groups will be to provide information to the Bond Project Team which will be gathered, organized and prioritized according to needs and available funding. This information will then be put forward to the District School Board as a recommendation for which elements and features should be incorporated into the design.
