Proposed Operations Center Updated 10/8/15
Original Post: At its August 3 meeting, the Board heard information and viewed a preliminary site plan related to the proposed construction of an operations center on vacant district property between Abrams Road and Greenville Avenue. The facility would provide additional functional space for support operations and consolidate a number of functions currently housed at different locations around the district, including Facility Services, Child Nutrition, Bond Project Management, Purchasing, Testing/Accountability, Textbooks, Warehouse, Print Shop, and Transportation.
Update: At its September 14 meeting, the Board viewed a more comprehensive site plan, which is available at the link below.
Update: RISD will be holding a community meeting to provide information and answer questions about the operations center on October 8 at 6:30pm in the Richland Elementary cafeteria, 550 Park Bend Dr. Interested residents are encouraged to attend.
