Title slide: Facilities Master Planning / Financial Advisory Board

Brian Jepson

President, OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital

0:08

Running hospitals, I’ve gone through master planning processes before for campuses and

0:13

for systems, and this is familiar.

Lisa Ingram

President and CEO, White Castle

0:17

I agreed to be a member of the Financial Advisory Board because I felt like I could make a very

0:21

small contribution to our next 50 years for the education of our students here in Arlington.

Michael Schoedinger

President, Schoedinger Funeral and Cremation Service

0:26

As I see it, the role of the Upper Arlington Financial Advisory Board is to just provide

0:31

different perspectives and guidance to the leadership of our schools.

Lisa Ingram

0:35

And we are providing input from a business point of view and from a community point of

0:39

view on how they should best go about the different options that are being proposed.

Andy Livingston

Executive vice president, Huntington 

0:43

I think the other individuals on the committee along with me have been extremely well engaged,

0:49

they’re well intended, and they want what’s best for the school system.

Brian Jepson

0:53

The leadership team at the schools have been very open to our thoughts, our concerns.

Michael Schoedinger

0:58

Throughout the meetings that we had, the Financial Advisory Board has asked a lot of tough questions.

1:03

The staff usually knows the answer.

1:06

They’re very well versed on this information.

Lisa Ingram

1:09

I thought I knew how schools were funded, [laughing] and I’ve learned a lot.

Andy Livingston

1:12

Certainly the expansiveness of the project from the construction - the dollars that are

1:21

included, how it will impact a family and a homeowner in the community, and all of the

1:27

decision making that needs to go into a project of this size was very interesting.

 

Michael Schoedinger

1:32

This has been an impressive experience.

Brian Jepson

1:35

I think it’s been spot-on.

Lisa Ingram

1:36

I’m really impressed with the whole master planning process.

1:39

It has been very, I think, collaborative.

Andy Livingston

1:42

I think it’s extremely important that the community be able to have their voice heard,

1:48

and I think that has been allowed by this process.

Lisa Ingram

1:52

I encourage everybody to go out and learn about it and find out all the information

1:59

that you can so that you can make the best informed decision because it really will matter

2:02

to the students of the future.

Andy Livingston

2:03

This isn’t a band-aid.

2:05

This is a long range plan which will help not only the children of today but the children,

2:10

in essence, that aren’t even in Arlington or born yet.
