COOPERSTOWN N.Y.- The Cooperstown School District held a public meeting Wednesday night to show off a proposed capital project.

The proposed project includes renovating the gymnasium in the district’s elementary school, renovating the library-media center in the Junior/Senior High School, and also renovating the athletic fields.

Major objectives of the proposed project also include improving walkways, access to roadways and athletic fields, energy-saving measures to include lighting and building envelope improvements, and maintenance or replacement of roofs, electrical equipment, and gymnasium flooring.

The project also would solve the drainage problem on the district’s athletic fields.

The project is estimated to cost $5,163,000 but, William T. Crankshaw the Cooperstown CSD Superintendent of Schools says it will not cost any of the Cooperstown taxpayers any additional money, and it would have a huge benefit to the school district.

“The gymnasium at the elementary school would be an expansion of the existing footprint that we have for the gymnasium. Allowing for more natural light, it will also allow for a larger space to host volleyball games and modified contests. It will also improve the space of our infastructure.” says Crankshaw.

The project will be up for a referendum vote on Tuesday December 17th in Room 305 of the Cooperstown Junior-Senior High School at 39 Linden Avenue in Cooperstown. District Residents will be able to vote that day from 7:00am-8:00pm.
