Belmont residents: Here is your chance to put your stamp on the design of the new Belmont High School when the Belmont High School Building Committee hosts a public Community Design Workshop on Thursday, Dec. 14 at 7 p.m. in the Belmont High cafeteria at 221 Concord Ave. An optional facility tour of the school will take place at 6 p.m.
The purpose of the workshop is to allow the public to be heard, be involved and be informed about the project, said Bill Lovallo, chair of the High School Building Committee.
“We will have a great visioning session … on the 14th,” said Lovallo. “This is a real exciting part of the design process, to start looking at what visions, what opportunities and what benefits we can get out of this project.”
Residents will participate in a hands-on, small-group visioning workshop focused on:
- Key features of major building spaces,
- Interior spaces to leverage high-quality teaching and learning, and
- Site planning discussions.
“There will be multiple sessions where we break up into smaller groups to discuss the issues before us and then present it to the entire workshop. The designers will then bring it back to their office to start to understand what the trends are,” said Lovallo.
“The design team wants to hear what people like and dislike, pros and cons,” he said.
