Corinth Central School District residents on Tuesday will be asked to approve a $11.9 million capital project focused on improving district facilities, including upgrading science classrooms and enlarging the high school auditorium.
Residents of the northern Saratoga County district can vote on the project Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Corinth Transportation Department building at 30 Saratoga Ave.
Based on the findings of the district building conditions surveys, which must be completed every five years, the proposed project includes modernizing science labs at the high school and middle school, improving access for people with disabilities, enlarging and reorienting the high school auditorium to better serve the community’s needs and redesigning entry points at the high school.
The project is designed to replace old district debt and will have a minimal impact on district taxpayers, estimated at about $13 per year for a home valued at $100,000. District officials cautioned that if the project is not approved, infrastructure in the district would continue to deteriorate and improvements would have to be funded in the general budget, a more costly approach for the community.
