2007 School Bond Includes $57 Million for Projects in Steele Creek

(September 10, 2007) Last week the Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners approved a $516 million bond package for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. The bonds would finance 39 projects with a total cost of $486 million and $30 for site acquisition. Projects within Steele Creek are:

  •  #5  - New elementary school at Dixie River Road (Berewick) - $16,896,000
  • #17 - New elementary school in York Road/Red Fez Club Road area - $16,896,000
  • #24 - New elementary school on Hamilton Road at Smith Road - $16,896,000
  • #25 - Roofing at Olympic - $385,000
  • #27 - Track and field at Olympic - $935,000
  • #38 - Stadium at Olympic - $5,527,500

The new elementary school in the Berewick community is badly needed to relieve Steele Creek Elementary School. The two new elementary schools in southern Steele Creek are in response to anticipated rapid growth in that area. The new Winget park Elementary School opened last fall and helped relieve Lake Wylie Elementary, but due to booming population in Steele Creek, trailers already are planned at the new school,

Improvements to Olympic athletic facilities would have been funded by the bond issue that failed in 2005.

The general election is on November 6. Early voting will be available at the Steele Creek Library and other library locations during the last two weeks of October. See Mecklenburg County Board of Elections for more information.
