Dear CP Smith Families,
Have you heard about the major construction projects planned this summer?
Burlington School District is hoping to break ground on a few major projects that include (3) new roads and (2) new buildings.
In 2017 city voters approved a deferred maintenance bond for $19M to address infrastructure needs.
Some of these voter-approved funds will be used to pave roads through the campuses of (1) Edmunds (2) CP Smith and (3) Champlain. The roads at CP Smith and Champlain are to provide access to new preschool facilities and new district offices (two new buildings).
The Smith plan includes a new preschool building to be located where the K-2 playground equipment is now and an access road and parking lot to be built to the left of the apple orchard which will let out onto Ethan Allen Parkway between the corner of Farrington Parkway and the elementary building.
BSD’s design plans for CP Smith will be presented at Smith PTO meeting at 6PM on Monday, May 14th in the learning center. There will be an opportunity to ask Marty Spaulding (BSD Director is Property Services) questions about the Smith project at this time.
Have questions and/or concerns? Contact your school board and city council representatives.

The BSD is planning to begin construction on a new preschool on the Smith campus beginning this June. The preschool would be located where the K-2 playground is now and it’s adjacent parking lot would be where the swingsets, orchard, and garden are now. The parking lot would outlet onto Ethan Allen Parkway approx 50 feet from the intersection of Ethan Allen and Farrington Parkways.
This BSD has yet to collect input from stakeholders like CP Smith parents, teachers, and building admin.
For more information and to contribute to a discussion of this project…
Please attend the Wards 4/7 NPA meeting tomorrow night
Wednesday 4/25 at the Miller Center at 6:45 PM
