Bond measure scaled down from previous proposals
October 3, 2008 · Updated 1:18 AM
The Riverview School District No. 407 has a bond on the ballot that
will finance the much-needed and begged-for athletic field and track
improvements to the Cedarcrest High School site. This outdoor facility will also
benefit the physical-education curriculum of students attending Cedarcrest
today, tomorrow and in the future.
The estimated annual tax increase of $26 on a $200,000 home will
allow the community, the students, athletes, cheerleaders, band members and
drill-team members to have a home field to be proud of. They will be able to
practice on their own fields. Currently they have to use other high-school
facilities. They will be able to host home games, a privilege that they
currently do not have.
The 2000 bond has been scaled down from previous proposals.
The 2000 bond proposes construction of an all-season field with modest
necessities (restrooms, bleachers, press box and concession booth) to
accommodate football, soccer, track and field, expansion of outdoor PE
curriculum and provide proper facilities for cross country, cheer, band and drill team.
If you vote "yes," you will see the pride of the students and the
excitement of the community when hosting a home soccer or football game, or
a track meet.
Your support is needed, and your "yes" vote is encouraged on Nov.
7. Please contact any school board member or log on to www.
