Davenport Central To Get New Pool, Auditorium

Posted: Updated:

 

Davenport's Central High is going to undergo $21-million in upgrades and the plan was presented to parents tonight.

During a workshop parents were told about plans to build a new auditorium and pool. The current auditorium has had upgrades, but is too small and it has to be manually wired for audio whenever there's an event.
 
The school's swimming pool was built in the 1960's and with only 4-lanes causes scheduling problems for P.E. classes and swim meets.
  
Building plans are still preliminary district leaders decided to ask parents their thoughts to get more ideas.

"Those same parents travel to a lot of other pools and a lot of auditoriums and can give us distinct feedback of what we want to see," Davenport Central principal Robert Scott said.

The $21-million will come from the one cent sales tax which can only be used for facility upgrades.
 
Another public workshop will be held on April 30th at 6:30 p.m. in Central's auditorium.
