What will it cost? A menu for possible Steamboat Springs school projects

The consulting firm NV5, working on behalf of the Steamboat Springs School District,  has provided its tentative cost estimates  for a variety of capital projects under consideration by the school board.

The school board is in the process of determining its highest priorities and which of those to take to the voters in the November election to seek funding, potentially through a bond issue, or perhaps a mill levy override. A special board meeting on July 18 will be devoted to the decision-making process.

NV5's project list follows:

Phase I critical projects 

Gardner Athletic Field new track surface and all-weather turf replacement: $3.6M
