Smith Construction Meeting 6/5 Now at IAA!

The School District meeting to discuss the proposed construction of a preschool building and parking lot in the schoolyard at CP Smith has changed locations.

Meet at the INTEGRATED ARTS ACADEMY, Tuesday June 5, at 6 PM

By the way, the flags in the schoolyard marking where the parking lot and preschool will be were put there by Smith parents to raise awareness.  We will remove them on Wednesday.

Also note, the meeting at IAA will be discussing the proposed construction at both CP Smith and Champlain Elementary.  The plan is also extremely relevant to IAA and SA families as it involves moving the preschool classrooms (that currently exist at both of those schools) out of the Old North End.

Why are there orange flags on the grass at CP Smith??

Hi CP Smith families,

You may have heard about plans to build a new preschool on the CP Smith campus. The construction schedule is on track to break ground as early as next month!

To see what the entrance and new parking lot will look like, check out the flagged area on the west side of the building. The area from Ethan Allen Parkway to the end of the swing set area shows the road and the parking lot. The square area around the playground is where the building is intended to go.

The school board still needs to issue a final approval of the plan.

To learn more and/or share your opinion on the project, please come to the School Board meeting at Hunt Middle School on Tuesday, June 5th at 6PM.

New Construction (Champlain, Edmunds, CP Smith)

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.

If you want to know more, click here to see drawings of the plans: 

And here for timelines etc.

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.
