The Kansas City architectural and design firm of BNIM is designing a $60 million renovation and expansion of North Kansas City High School.
The work, requested by the North Kansas City School District, will be undertaken contingent on a public vote set for Aug. 2.
The district will ask North Kansas City voters to approve a $114 million bond issue that doesn’t include any tax increases.
In addition to being used to upgrade the 90-year-old high school building at 620 E. 23rd Ave., the bond funds would be distributed across the district.
BNIM said it’s working on infrastructure updates and other improvements to the high school property to bring its facilities more in line with what’s offered at the district’s other high schools, Oak Park, Staley and Winnetonka.
The new designs also are expected to add public activity spaces at the high school.
