Lyseth Project Public Forum Jan. 17
Posted on 01/09/2019
This is the image for the news article titled Lyseth Project Public Forum Jan. 17A public forum will be held on Thursday, Jan. 17, at 6 p.m. in the Lyseth cafeteria to review the final design plan for the renovation of Lyseth Elementary School. There will be an opportunity for public comment.

Portland voters in 2017 approved a $64 million Buildings for our Future referendum to renovate Lyseth, Presumpscot, Reiche and Longfellow elementary schools. Lyseth has been chosen as the first school  to be renovated and, after months of work, the Portland Board of Public Education on Jan. 8 approved the design for that project. 

At the forum, the Harriman architectural firm will make a presentation of the design plan. Following the presentation, a District Advisory Building Committee (DABC) meeting will be held to take public comment.

The next step in the Lyseth renovation project will be hiring a contractor. Groundbreaking is expected in the spring.
