Capital Project 2007

South Hill Playground

In March 2007, Ithaca City School District voters overwhelmingly approved a special referendum on a capital project to address the need for larger learning spaces, safer traffic flow, and facility repairs across the District. An historic 64 percent of voters turned out to pass the largest expansion in ICSD history.
 
The five-year project transformed ICSD schools into progressive learning spaces and greatly improved the District’s facilities. Some of the enhancements included remodeling the Ithaca High School’s performing arts and wellness centers, repairing and upgrading athletic fields, building new playgrounds at elementary schools, installing new HVAC systems, reconfiguring traffic flows, and updating classroom spaces.
 
Since undergoing these capital improvements, the ICSD has taken on other smaller-scale projects to improve its buildings, including a $9.8 million Energy Performance Contract (EPC), a $1.8 million Smart Bond Project, a $0.1 million capital outlay project, and various capital reserve projects totaling $1.9 million.
