The work on our turf field and athletic facilities on the Westlake Campus is progressing well and we are looking forward to it being completed. It is now time to plan for the next 3-5 years. We are specifically planning improvements to our schools that are focused on both safety and security as well as to the instructional program. Our work will also address the space constraints that currently exist at Hawthorne Elementary School. Just like the field bond, this proposed project will be structured to be tax neutral, thus having no additional impact on our residents' taxes.
