The principals of Evergreen, Tyee and Pacific are forming building design committees who will work with the architects during the initial phase of design for their proposed new buildings. Application deadline is Oct. 16.
The 2016 bond funds the design of a new Evergreen High School. The design work is slated to begin in 2019 with selection of an architect. We expect to involve the Evergreen community in planning and design of their new school by early 2020. We will share information about the formation of a design review committee and how to express interest in being a member.
Construction of a new Evergreen High School will require funding from a proposed bond in the future. Completing the design in this bond will speed up the construction process by approximately two years and save an estimated $9 million in escalating construction costs for the three design-only projects in this bond (Evergreen High School, Tyee High School and Pacific Middle School).
Here is a progress report on projects big and small voters approved in the November 2016 bond.
Evergreen High School is $250,000 closer to an artificial turf field thanks to a grant from King County Parks!
