Komarek School District 94 is seeking Broadview residents who live in the Harvester or Beverly areas to join the district’s facility improvement steering committee. In a statement, Komarek District 94 Supt. Brian J. Ganan explained the duties of committee members.
“This committee will review the information gathered by the previous steering committee,” he said. “This includes the scope of the project that was voted down during a spring 2019 referendum. Members of the committee will decide if changes to the scope of the project will be suggested to the Board of Education.”
During the election on April 2, a referendum calling for a $22 million bond issue “to fund a major renovation and expansion of Komarek School in North Riverside” was defeated 59 percent to 41 percent, according to the Riverside-Brookfield Landmark.
Ganan stated that the steering committee will meet approximately four to six times. After the committee “has proposed the recommended solution(s), school officials will host community meetings to: gather feedback on the proposed solution(s), provide information on the physical state of the present facility, explain how the proposed improvements will meet Health/Life Safety requirements, describe how the solution(s) will provide a safe and secure environment, explain how the project meets the requirements for 21st Century teaching and learning and provide potential tax impact information for residents,” he stated.
Steering committee members will help facilitate the meetings, Ganan explained. The first meeting will happen on Thursday, Sept. 19, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., inside of the Komarek’s library, 8940 W. 24th St. in North Riverside. Anyone interested in joining the committee should contact Ganan at (708) 447-8030 or firstname.lastname@example.org. VFP
