District Voters Approve Capital ReferendumDecember 7, 2022: North Syracuse Central School District voters have approved a capital project referendum for $61.2 million including safety & security and infrastructure improvements throughout the District, along with the installation of a multipurpose turf field for athletic teams. 786 votes were cast, with the final tally being 485 yes votes and 301 no votes for a 61.7% voter approval. The majority of the project will be covered by state aid, reducing the tax levy increase to less than ½ percent or approximately $9 annually on a home valued at $100,000.
“Many thanks to all of our community members who came out to vote on this important project. We’re grateful for a community that supports all aspects of education and extracurricular opportunities for students,” said Superintendent of Schools Dan Bowles. “Now, more than ever, we need to make every effort to ensure that our schools are safe environments for our students and staff and that our students have opportunities to compete on high quality athletic fields.”
Additional details about the project implementation and timeline will be announced at upcoming Board of Education meetings and will be made available on the Capital Projects website.
