Silver Creek Central School District Capital Project Approved | News, Sports, Jobs

SILVER CREEK — Residents of the Silver Creek Central School District have approved a $950,000 capital project by a vote of 163 yes and 23 no.

“The community has once again overwhelmingly supported improvements to the buildings, grounds and infrastructure of the District campus,” said Superintendent Todd Crandall. “The neighborhood is a shining light in the community of Silver Creek. We thank the community for their support of the capital project.

The project — focused on campus-wide health and safety improvements and deferred maintenance — will be paid for from district reserve accounts at no cost or increased taxes to district residents. The project includes track resurfacing, a new freight elevator, eye wash stations and updated plumbing in the galley pipes.

The track component is the centerpiece of the project. Resurfacing, at a cost of approximately $505,000, will likely begin in the summer of 2023. The track is a popular asset used by students, staff, and the community for exercise, health/wellness, and public events. Athletic director Sean Helmer believes the Black Knights track team has been unable to hold a competition at the Silver Creek track for the past three years due to his condition.
