September 10, 2018. On Thursday, September 6, more than 100 members of the Loveland City School District and the larger Loveland community gathered at the first Building Tiger Nation Community Meeting to hear about the current condition of the district’s buildings and facilities. Christie Boron, principal of the architect firm emersion DESIGN, presented data from the physical building assessments conducted over the past several months, as well as the estimated cost associated with maintaining and/or replacing aging school facilities. John Ames, Loveland Schools business manager, discussed enrollment projections for the district as a whole and how they will factor into the determinations regarding needs for expanded buildings and facilities.
“This was the first community meeting in a series to inform and support the decision making for a master facilities plan that will be presented to the Loveland Board of Education in the spring of 2019,” said Superintendent Dr. Amy Crouse. “We’ve clearly heard the message from our community – ‘let’s get on with it’ – and we’re now engaged in master planning in earnest!”
Building Tiger Nation is the natural continuation of the work initiated two years ago by the Destination Loveland Task Force - a group of Loveland parents, community members, business leaders, educators, staff and administrators tasked with developing the future goals for the district.
Community members are encouraged to continue their involvement and lend their voices in the process. For those who were not able to attend the September 6 meeting, the full presentation and a calendar of upcoming events can be found at www.buildingtigernation.org.
