  • When they met Tuesday, Leavenworth city commissioners were briefed on options that are being looked at as part of a long-range facility planning process for the local school district.
    The briefing came as part of quarterly presentation to the commissioners from the Leavenworth public schools.
    Superintendent Kelly Crane introduced Kirk Horner and Megan Warner of Hollis + Miller Architects. The architects reviewed where they are in the long-ranging planning process. Warner reviewed different facility options for the future using three enrollment scenarios — flat, increased and decreased enrollment. The options included different grade configurations.
    Horner said West Intermediate School is targeted a lot for changes in the options. He said this building scores low in terms of maintenance issues and flexibility.
    He said the several options that were presented will be narrowed to two or three. And the Hollis + Miller officials will work with the school board to adopt a long-range plan.
    Crane said the planning process has nothing to do with a bond issue. She said the process will provide blue prints for the future.
    Also Tuesday, Leavenworth city commissioners heard a quarterly presentation from Steve Jack, executive director of the Leavenworth County Development Corporation. He updated commissioners on projects the organization has been working on.
