Capital Improvement Project Update

The Honeoye Central School District would like to undertake reconstruction, renovations, improvements and repairs to the Honeoye Central District main building and the bus garage.

2024 CIP Vote Date Established
The Honeoye Central School District Board of Education passed a resolution during a Special Meeting of the Board on 1/31:  A Special Meeting of the qualified voters of the Honeoye Central School District will be held on Tuesday, March 26, 2024 at the Honeoye Central School, 8528 Main Street, Honeoye, New York, in the Auditorium Foyer on which date and at which place the polls shall be open between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m., local time, for the purpose of voting on the propositions described

2024 CIP Scope of Work
BOE member Tori Penrod-Clark shared the following statement, which captures the essence of the 2024 CIP proposal which will be put before voters on March 26:

We moved forward with a fiscally responsible, higher bond ratio, 95 % aidable plan, and no impact to tax payers.  We decided to focus the project on a majority of the priorities founded in the BCS.  The playground remained a not-negotiable.  The covered entrances remain.  The track and fitness center will not be part of the vote.  With the plan we have come up with there is potential to go out on another project in 3-5 years.  We decided to be proactive and attempt to keep prices down, this project needs to happen as close to the original timeline we set out on, realizing the dates are already being pushed back because of the no vote in December. 

As stated above, the 2024 Capital Improvement Project proposal reflects a project which focuses on noted Building Condition Survey deficiencies, facility upkeep & efficiencies, safety, health & wellness.  It includes the priority maintenance items identified in the original scope of work (2023 CIP) and some additional maintenance items which had been designated as alternates. The 2024 CIP proposal does not include the six lane track or fitness center.
