We conducted eight community meetings, so it is essential that we move forward with careful deliberation in consideration of the input we have received from the entire community," said Lourdes Moran, OPSB President.
said it is important for the community to have a clear overall picture of available resources.
"We currently have in the mid-$600 million range available for construction.
Dollars spent and committed to projects that were in Phase O and Phase 1 have reduced the original $1.6 billion FEMA settlement for school construction.
That is still a very significant amount of money, and we will continue our efforts to make these the wisest public expenditures in the history of our city," said Moran
