I recently had some questions in regards to the paving that was completed at the high school. I have linked the proposals that were voted on at the August 14, 2018 board meeting. The areas that were approved to be repaved are pictured in the proposals as areas A and B. These were completed as approved in August. Area C, as designated in the proposal, or the high school parking lot area, has yet to be completed and has not been presented to the board. At this time, there is no money in the budget to complete this task. To repair area C (high school parking lot), just the loop or driveway that circles the parking lot, would be an estimated $25,000. This does not include where the parking spaces are located. We will cold patch, as best we can the rough areas, but the cold patch is just a quick fix. Tallmadge Asphalt recommended, because of our limited budget, resurfacing the areas that are driven on the most and cold patching the parking areas. This is due to the fact that people only park there, as opposed to being heavily traveled driveways or passageways. To get an idea of the total cost to fix and pave the entire district, I have linked an assessment completed in 2017 by IAP Government Services Group (http://iap-gsg.com). This was a free district assessment of our paved areas and the cost to maintain and upgrade them. We wanted to have a general idea of the costs moving forward. As you can see in that estimate, they recommended a total reconstruction of the high school parking lot at a cost of $491,622.00 in the year 2021. IAP's estimate for a 10-year upgrade plan was $3,065,604.00 for all of our paved areas. Of course, construction costs typically increase two to three percent a year.
