BOULDER, CO: At its regular meeting on Tuesday, the Boulder Valley Board of Education voiced support for a proposal to convene a Capital Improvement Planning Committee (CIPC) to work with district staff on updating the Educational Facilities Master Plan.
Since June of last year, district operations staff has been working to inventory the capital improvement needs of district facilities. This data will be used to update the master plan which will be the guiding document for the district’s capital improvement planning and also may become the basis for a future Bond measure.
The Capital Improvement Planning Committee will be comprised of BVSD staff and stakeholders representing the broad characteristics of the BVSD community and will provide insight related to community values and priorities. Committee members will offer staff, parent and community perspectives on district facilities and act as liaisons to the public, particularly to the large segment of taxpayers that does not have students in schools.
The committee will begin work in April and will continue until next summer. All interested community members are encouraged to apply. Professional experience in relevant fields such as architecture, engineering, construction, information technology and green building would be helpful to the work of the group.
“This is very rewarding work which has a definitive positive impact on the educational environment of Boulder Valley students,” Don Orr, assistant superintendent of operations, told the board.
Applications may be picked up at the Education Center at 6500 East Arapahoe Road, Boulder, or downloaded from the website
. Deadline to apply is March 22 at 4 p.m.
