UPDATE: District Releases Images of Potential St. Croix Meadows School

The images are intended to provide a visual look at what a potential school could look like on the property taking advantage of the existing structure. The final design could differ significantly based on community feedback.

UPDATE (6:20 p.m., March 9, 2012): Hudson School District has released three artist renderings that show what St. Croix Meadows could look like as a secondary school. According to the district, these images are intended to provide a visual look at what a potential school could look like on the property taking advantage of the existing structure. The final design may look differently based on the community surveys, feedback and information sessions that will be held by the district following the passage of the April 3 referendum.

Video begins several minutes into the presentation because of technical difficulties.

The dog and pony show seems to be losing steam. Maybe they should have had this one at Caribou with such a large audience... Can't even hear the questions on your audio but it's easy to see the vote yes cronies because they get the floor for an extended period of time and are smiling the whole time they're talking.

The absolute snow job this deal is, is a blizzard. I was there last night. What worries me is the 2nd referendum that will be on the ballot in 6 months, if the April 3rd vote passes. I had no idea there would be a 2nd vote coming w/ the "plan" that the district does not have. That vote is for the blank check they need for "Up to 40 million.". That is the part that scares me. I don't think many people know that part. I am so happy I went. I was very disappointed that there were so few there. I have a feeling this is going to be bad, Community members not informed on the WHOLE deal, not just the land purchase, could put our town in a bad position. What happens when the vote passes on the 3rd, but the blank check vote does not, THEN we are stuck w/ another piece of land, not to mention the other property the district owns that we cant do a whole lot with, which they talked about why. I could go on and on and on....I won't.

There were so few there because the wise administrator scheduled this forum on the same night that both the middle school and the high shool were having spring band concerts. I had to make the decision whether to attend the band concert or Mary B's presentation. I decided a 65-85 million dollar project and the ensuing tax increases were more important so I attended the show.

The referendum passing does not secure the deal. It still has to get re-zoned by the Hudson City Council.

I just added three artist renderings the district has released. The images show what the outside of St. Croix Meadows could look like as a secondary school.

How much for the facelift?

The push for the needed space to effectively educate our/your children putting them into the best position possible to succeed is only ramping up, not "losing steam". The audio quality of the video has nothing to do with voting yes or no, but was an effort by "The Hudson Patch" to help educate those who would like more information to make a well based decision on what is best for our community. It is proven that strong schools build strong communities, and if you believe in Hudson and want to ensure Hudson succeeds your vote will reflect this on April 3rd by voting yes. For anyone who might not know which way are voting I urge you to dig through some great information found at http://www.voteyeshudson.com/ From the most common Q/A's that everyone in the community are asking, to what the plan/goal is for for land, to discussions around the core issues. Don't simply "believe" what is posted, for or against the vote, educate yourself.
