Facilities Master Plan

Your Voice Matters: Master Plan Design Phase

Community members gathered around draft plans at a meetingOver the past year, community members, staff members and students have come alongside the Upper Arlington Board of Education and design professionals to inform the design process for a new high school and five new or renovated elementary schools.

These six new or renovated buildings represent the first phase of the Upper Arlington community’s facilities master plan, a long-term, financially sensible road map for the district’s aging school buildings. After a two-and-a-half-year community-driven master planning process, Upper Arlington voters approved the funding for the first phase of the master plan.

Thanks to the commitment of the Board of Education and the work of the design professionals, the expansive design process continues on schedule and on budget. As of the fall of 2018, these projects are entering the final stage of the design process in preparation for groundbreakings on the first five projects in the spring of 2019.
 
As of the fall of 2018, construction is expected to follow the tentative timeline below. This timeline may be revised during the final stage of the design process and/or during the construction process based on any potential delays that arise. 

What's Next

Community Meetings:
