Cuyahoga Falls City Council on Monday night (Sept. 26) unanimously approved a plan for Woodridge Local School District to build a new elementary school facility and for a new gymnasium to be constructed at the high school.
Planning Director Fred Guerra said the new elementary school facility will be divided in some respects and house Woodridge Primary School and Woodridge Intermediate School. The site is on vacant land between State Road and Quick Road.
Guerra said this proposed building will make up 15 percent of an 80-acre campus. The elementary building will be designed to accommodate 900 students in grades Pre-K-5. The school will contain administrative, media center, intermediate school gymnasium, primary school gymnasium, student dining, food preparation, shipping-receiving and maintenance areas, according to a report issued by the city planning division.
Plans also call for a new high school gym to be built on the north side of the high school and next to the baseball field. The high school will also see updates including a new locker room and a new 140-space parking lot.
