Our team provided countless volunteer efforts in community engagement and master planning services for the District and assisted in the passing of a bond in November 2007. The schools serve as the hub for numerous community activities. North College Hill is a dense working class neighborhood of approximately 10,000 inhabitants with 95 % of attendees within a 1.5 mile walking radius of the school. Located on the north edge of the commercial district, the new Middle School / High School building, along with an adjacent new Elementary School, are dominant elements of the revitalization of the city. Community support for the project was vital in getting the bond passed, and our team worked hand-in-hand with District personnel to communicate plans and garner community support.
