At a work session on February 23, each member of the Blue Ridge School Board received a copy of a "District-Wide Facility Study" that describes the current condition of the district campus and its prospects for the future. The document, which Board President Alan Hall referred to as a "feasibility study", was produced by Burkavage Design Associates of Clarks Summit at a cost of $18,000. Mr. Hall asked the Board to read the study in preparation for future discussion that might consider options outlined in the document for expansion of campus facilities. The document describes four possible approaches, ranging in estimated cost from zero for a plan that maintains the status quo up to over $11.5 million for a large new gym and expanded elementary school space, among other things. As Mr. Hall said, the study contains "anything and everything that the district doesn't have."
Susquehanna Boro will be proceeding with an application to be included in the states Main Street program. It was reported at the February 24 council meeting that the application was expected to be submitted by March 1, along with several letters of support from community members. If the boro is accepted into the program, subcommittees would need to be set up, for organization, finance, design and event planning, as well as for any other area that needs to be addressed. Any residents or business owners who may be interested would be welcome to participate. In conjunction with the Main Street program, discussion is underway to plan a Hometown Days celebration, perhaps two or three days long, to be held each year.
