POTSDAM When Potsdam Central Schools $18 million capital project is complete, the high school will look like a different building as repairs to its masonry are made and siding is installed on the original 1927 wing of the building.
It will ultimately be a different-looking building than it is now, SEI Design Group project manager Matthew Schools said before the board voted on a conceptual design.
Mr. Schools presented the board with four designs, each with subtle differences, mostly color schemes.
When the buildings and grounds committee met earlier this month, it was joined by a subcommittee made up of community members. That group agreed on a concept calling for shades of blue and tan, Mr. Schools said. Aside from the windows not having an arch in the center, this is the preferred option.
Board member Wade A. Davis, who chairs the buildings and grounds committee, thanked his fellow board members, as well as those who served on the committee that helped come up with the design.
While the picture of the proposed concept includes landscaping, school board President Christopher C. Cowen Jr. said what the board approved was a concept for the building itself, noting the final product may look different from the drawing.
Technically were talking about color scheme and not necessarily architectural changes, he said.
