    Plans to move forward with renovating schools in Cleveland Heights is starting to form, but we need residents to show support. The Cleveland Heights Patch discusses further in their article CH-UH District Hopes to Engage Residents in Building Renovation Plans:

    Attendance has been sparse at many of the meetings dedicated to discussing the Cleveland Heights-University Heights City School District's plans to overhaul its antiquated buildings.

    Now that school officials are moving forward with plans to renovate or replace all facilities in the district, they have started scheduling forums for residents to learn more about the planning process and to provide their feedback.

    District officials hope for a big turnout, and they're offering food and activities for children at the meetings to encourage people to stop by and accommodate busy parents.

    The first public meeting will be from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Nov. 30 in the Heights High Social Room.

    At the October board meeting, members approved two contracts to hire companies that will help the district devise a plan and estimate the cost of the construction.

    The district hired a group of architectural firms that will work together to create a master plan. Minneapolis-based Fielding Nair, Fanning Howey of Dublin, OH, and local firm studioTECHNE will develop a plan and engage the community in the decision-making process.

    Cleveland-based Regency Construction will review the plan that the group of companies comes up with and conduct a cost and constructability analysis to estimate approximately the amount of money the district will need to raise to complete the project.

    The team of architects will receive $334,840, and the base fee for Regency Construction is $30,000, said Steve Shergalis, director of business services for the district, by email. The Regency payment will be adjusted based on the number of master plans the group analyzes, he said.

    The district is paying the companies with money from the permanent improvement fund, Superintendent Douglas Heuer said at the October meeting.

    "We were band-aiding the often outdated facilities we're working in right now, and accumulated $40 million in repairs to just fix them," he said. Now, the district is redirecting that money toward lasting improvements, and operating funds will not be used.

    According to a press release from the CH-UH City School District, the Nov. 30 meeting will:

    • Provide an overview of the district’s educational vision;
    • Describe the planning process that has been undertaken;
    • Provide residents an opportunity to assist in defining priorities and goals.
