Fred Seeba, an engineer with BBS Architects, Landscape Architects and Engineers, gave a presentation on Wednesday before the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District Board of Education, offering details about a $47.6 million bond proposal that would, if passed, fund upgrades at each of the district’s five schools, as well as the Brookside Central Administration Office and the Jerusalem Avenue School, which is rented to the Board of Cooperative Educational Services.

The Central District has long made necessary repairs to buildings on an annual basis. Schools, however, start to really show their age after five decades, requiring more extensive renovation, according to Seeba. The district’s newest school –– Kennedy –– was completed in the 1966 –– 47 years ago. None of the district’s schools has undergone a major overhaul since it was built.

The proposed renovation plan’s objective, Seeba said, is to repair and renovate the district’s schools “so you don’t have to talk about this for another 50 years.”
