CMS Adopts 2007 Bond Request - 6 Steele Creek Projects Included

(April 29, 2007) At its April 24 meeting, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School Board adopted a 2007 funding request that will be sent to the Mecklenburg County Commission for their consideration and possible inclusion on the November 2007 ballot. The request would fund 53 total projects costing $510,724,732 (or $586,708,897, adjusted for inflation).

Among the projects are:

  • New elementary school at Dixie River Road (Berewick) - $15,360,000
  • New elementary school in York Road/Red Fez Club Road area - $15,360,000
  • New elementary school on Hamilton Road at Smith Road - $15,360,000
  • Roofing at Olympic - $350,000
  • Track at Olympic - $850,000
  • Stadium at Olympic - $5,025,000

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 board decided to include all unfunded projects from the 2005 bond in the 2007 request.

The proposal next goes to the Board of County Commissioners, who will decide on the bond package that will be on the November ballot.
