GRAND FORKS, ND (WDAZ)--The new year has come and the Grand Forks school board is hoping to get some new input from the public on what to do with the district’s aging facilities.

A committee met last night to discuss how best to present ideas at a public forum later this month.

JLG Architects has given a number of recommendations of what the district can do.

Some of those recommendations include closing 3 elementary schools and building a new middle school.

The committee is planning on doing a public survey.

“There may or may not be a required tax increase to help fund whatever project, and if there is any need for that, there would need to be a vote of the public, so you need the support, not just for implementation of the plan, but also for the funding of that plan,” said School Board President Doug Carpenter.

The public forum will be held January 22.

Surveys will be handed out there. The school district is also working to get one online soon.
