Revitalization Among the Goals for La Crosse School Referendum


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW)  When residents answered a question on a city wide survey about whether a new school could help revitalize a community, La Crosse School superintendent Randy Nelson says 83% of the people who answered, said yes.

Community revitalization is among the goals for the La Crosse Schools referendum.  Nelson says, "during this economic downturn we've experienced during this last 3, 4, 5 years, what we're really kind of noticing at the same time across our city is some neighborhood issues and some things that, over time, we want to try to address. . ."

Passing the referendum would mean $25 on a $100 thousand home.  According to information from the District, if the request passes, they would engage in about six months of planning for the project.  Then, about a year and a half for construction.  They say a fall 2014 opening is a possibility.
