This image depicts the most recent—but still preliminary—site plan for a new elementary school and athletic facilities for the Cameron School District. The site is located in the vicinity of the southwest corner of the Hwy. SS and 15th Avenue in the Town of Stanley.
Cameron residents are invited to attend a public meeting next Wednesday, June12 at 7 p.m. at the Cameron Middle School to discuss building an elementary school. The administration would like a referendum to go to the vote in November asking for $20.5 million to build the school, renovate areas of the high school and middle school and build athletic fields. The 80-acre site for the school is located north of the Village of Cameron and south of the Mayo Clinic Health System along Hwy. SS. "We really want to hear any ideas," said district superintendent Randal Braun. "We also would like to hear any concerns," said High School principal Joe Leschisin who has taken the lead in planning for the changes. "We won't know what people want addressed if they don't ask." Leschisin said that updated information on costs and what the referendum will do to taxes will be discussed. Other items to be addressed include safety concerns parking and traffic flow issues and blueprints of the building projects are on the agenda. Timelines of the project depend on the final financing however Leschisin said that he hopes the building would all be completed by August of 2015.
