Cedar Rapids school district bond referendum to go to voters this fall
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - The Cedar Rapids Community School District approved a bond referendum during a special meeting on Thursday.
That bond will now go to a vote on the November ballot.
Earlier this year, Save CR Heritage fought against the school board’s planned demolition of Harrison Elementary.
The panelists were critical of the bond referendum, including the only school board member who’s against the plan: Dexter Merschbrock.
They voiced concerns about how the facility master plan will impact school size, neighborhoods, and busing.
“It feels like there’s a lot of loose ends that haven’t been talked about in a transparent manner.” said The President of Save CR Heritage Nikki Halvorson.
