FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KFTA) — The Fayetteville Board of Education Meeting addressed high school parking issues for the next school year, and approved three recommendations to add 200 spots.
Fayetteville High School has an enrollment of over 2500 students, but can only issue 446 parking passes.
The approved recommendations will include changes behind the central office, front lot, and a new parking outline.
For the additional 200 spots, the project will cost an estimated $866,502.
“We will move forward with all three of those options. Our next step is begin to release the information and seek bid proposals to be able to move forward with the work, and determine how we can fit into those schedules so we can hopefully get started on construction and the movement of that,” Associate Superintendent Dr. Megan Slocum said.
Slocum says she hopes the project can be completed during the summer of 2019.
These additional spots mean all seniors will have a space to park, and juniors will enter a lottery system.
