This is the third in a series of community meetings over the next couple of weeks throughout the city to work on the BEX IV package, which is expected to be voted on in February 2013.

The meeting will include presentations by Capital Projects and Planning staff, followed by a question and answer session. Comments from the community will be collected to consider when the District puts together the BEX package.

It also included new construction at South Shore Pre-K-8 and Denny International Middle School.
