Linwood Monroe Arts Plus - School Design Committee

UPDATE-April  19, 2017: On April 19, Saint Paul's City Council voted 7-0 in favor of LMAP's variances which now clears the path to begin construction at both campuses. A copy of the SPPS' variance application is also available for viewing.
 
BACKGROUND
 
Linwood Monroe Arts Plus, a dual PreK-8 campus, is starting the design process for building renovations that is based on SPPS’ 10‐year Facilities Master Plan (FMP) to ensure its school buildings are able to meet the 21st century learning needs of students.

A draft of the original project work scope or plan for Linwood (Lower Campus) and Monroe (Upper Campus) are available (please note these plans were conceptual designs and, per the updated April 21, 2016, presentation on Linwood, do not necessarily represent the work that will actually be done to the school).

LINWOOD/LOWER: PROJECT SCOPE

  • Project scope:

    • Adding 3-story addition next to the current building for additional learning spaces to accommodate the move of prekindergarten and grade 4 from Monroe to Linwood to provide more aligned academic support.
    • Renovating existing classrooms for equity in size.

    Variance(s): Lot coverage and building height; the variance application will be completed in December after an environmental assessment is completed in November.

    Break ground: Summer 2017; Completion: Fall 2018

    A list of frequently asked questions from the April 21, 2016, Linwood community meeting is also available for review.

    To help inform the renovations, we have formed a School Design Committee made up of district and academic leaders, teachers, students, families, community members and key partners. Through the guidance of a Steering Committee, the School Design Committee will be collaborating with architects and engineers on the concept design for the project.To provide input on the renovations, the School Design Committee will participate in four workshops.
