the High School Community Meeting held on January 24, 2018.
Items reported upon where:
Feedback from Community Meeting – Site short list was reviewed and cost breakdown for
each site noted.
During a recent Yellowstone County Commissioners meeting it was suggested Site A is the
most logical choice considering countywide issues. Those community members attending
were asked to vote their site choice at the Community Meeting, resulting with site A being
the overwhelming popular choice. All notes from these meetings are posted upon the
Lockwood High School Page located on the Lockwood School webpage.
Site Selection Discussion- Cost, square footage and student population discussions were
held. The Trustee Building Committee directed Collaborate Design to focus efforts on Site A
in light of community input and cost feasibility.
Programming Discussion – Architect Nick Pancheau asked for direction regarding specific
district needs for multi-use buildings use such as auditorium and commons areas. He
presented preliminary image designs and the vote tally for each image received from the
community meeting. Gymnasium seating of 3,500 to 3,100 is being investigated currently as
well as a stadium with seating capacity at 4,500, which is similar to the stadium size at
Next Steps – Building Committee Meeting to bring proposed building layout and design to
include initial cost estimates will be held next Friday. February 2, 2018 at 12:00 p.m.
