Members of the Oakdale design advisory committee met with the DLR Group this week to discuss the future of the new Oakdale Elementary. The team discussed issues such as design, parking, and space considerations. Construction on the new building begins during the summer of 2016.
The Board of Education has contracted with the DLR Group to design a new building for Oakdale Elementary. Design work on Westside Middle School and high-priority projects at elementary schools also is under way.

Westside administrators and representatives from BVH Architects recently met with students at Westside Middle School to get their input on upcoming projects. The Board of Education has contracted with the firm to design a 15,000-square-foot addition and plan renovations of an additional 75,000 square feet of existing space. Work on the addition is slated to begin next summer.
Listening sessions have been scheduled to gather input from the community about building design and traffic issues. At the Nov. 23 building review, architects will take ideas about elements of the existing building that could be incorporated into or influence the design of the new Oakdale. During the Dec. 15 traffic session, engineers will listen to concerns and comments about traffic issues at the school. No design concepts or solutions will be presented at either meeting. Both meetings will be at 6:30 p.m. at Oakdale Elementary, 9801 West Center Road.
