June 19-- At their monthly meeting, the Toombs County Board of Education reviewed a presentation from architect Karen Schmidt of John A. Tuten and Associates Architects of Brunswick, Georgia regarding the initial design plans for the new Toombs County High School.
The initial design is for an approximately 210,000 square foot facility which will include a competition gym as well an auditorium. Rough cost estimates are in the neighborhood of 26 million dollars, however those are only preliminary at this time. Funding estimates would be approximately 4.2 million dollars from the state with the remaining balance of around 22 million from existing and future SPLOST funds.
The board and superintendent are currently reviewing the plans and will make a decision at a called board meeting on July 12th at 5 p.m. The architectural plans are available for viewing at the board of education office or on their website www.toombs.k12.ga.us.
