Community feedback fuels initial design plans for new Walnut Hill School


Following the Oct. 20 tornado that damaged the original Walnut Hill Elementary and Edward H. Cary Middle School facilities beyond repair, trustees unanimously approved a plan to build a consolidated pre-K through eighth-grade campus to serve those school communities.

For the first step, district officials and architects hosted public meetings to gather community feedback and ideas on the new school facility.

The architects used the ideas and feedback to create initial dozens of concept drawings to open discussions about design for the new school. Community leaders at a March 4 design charrette provided feedback on the concepts presented, helping further guide the architects as they develop future plans for the school.
