Center Point-Urbana Voters Turn Down High School Addition


By Jay Knoll

LINN COUNTY, Iowa - Voters in the Center Point-Urbana school district did not pass a $9.8 million bond referendum for an addition to the high school.

Voters turned down the issue by a 53 to 47 percent margin. It needed 60 percent approval to pass. The money would have allowed the district to put the finishing touches on the new high school. That includes a 650-seat auditorium, industrial tech classroom, and wrestling and weight room.

Right now, industrial tech courses and the wrestling and weight rooms are in another building.
