As expected, the plan to make major traffic and changes around Lyndon schools will go to a vote May 6.
Board members approved a $12.3 million bond issue to be repaid in 25 years or less at their meeting Monday. Lyndon City Council members gave their approval to close Seventh last week with the district considering changes for several years, according to Superintendent Brian Spencer.
Close to 65,000 square feet in new school building space would be added with this bond measure. Original plans to shut down Lyndon's Sixth Street and build across the vacated space to connect the two school buildings have been adjusted to close Seventh instead. Additional changes would include moving the front office, new dome structures to double as auditorium and storm shelter space, as well as other security and traffic upgrades.
Passage would raise the levy by 23 mils for Lyndon patrons.
