Capital Project - Admin/Food/Warehouse
The revenue from the Rock Island County 1% Sales Tax is giving the Rock Island-Milan School District much needed funds to complete construction projects and plan building upgrades for the future!
Food Production / Warehouse / Administration Center 2020-2021
With continuing discussions, the RIMSD #41 Administration explored the options of locating the Food Production and Warehouse at other locations in Rock Island aside from Rock Island High School. On Dec. 8, Superintendent Dr. Lawrence presented options and different locations of a possible Central Admin/Food Production and Warehouse facility to the Board of Education. On December 21, a Virtual Community Forum was held to gather feedback from staff, parents and community.
On December 22, the Board of Education voted to move forward with the planning of the project at a site on the corner of 20th Street and 7th Avenue, adjacent to the building that was formerly Central Jr. High/Lincoln School/Intermediate Academy. The $7.6 million project will include 15,000 square feet for administration offices, 15,000 square feet for warehouse space and 5,000 square feet for a production kitchen.
Legat Architects developed a site footprint of the facility. Design plans will be forthcoming and will be shared with the community when available.
