A Master Site Planning Committee, composed of citizens from the communities the Nicolet Union High School District serves, met to assess the high school’s current and future facility needs. In the Spring of 2014 the Committee conducted an extensive community outreach process to get feedback on several development options from citizens, taxpayers and local public officials.
On June 23, 2014 the Nicolet School Board approved a comprehensive athletic facilities improvement plan.
Part of the plan includes selling the upper fields property east of I-43 to help fund the development of the new facilities. Accordingly, the School Board marketed the upper fields property and pursed focused negotiations with interested parties. As a result of these efforts, the School Board identified a potential buyer and voted unanimously to pass a resolution approving a sale contract for the upper fields on May 23, 2016.
The City of Glendale will oversee the development process according to the established city procedure. To learn more about next steps, read the joint news release from the Nicolet School District and the City of Glendale.
The sale of the upper fields will fund Phase I of the athletic facilities redevelopment project. The District will work with community leaders and athletic booster clubs on fundraising efforts and potential naming rights for future phases of the project. Taxpayer dollars will not be used to fund the project. Nor will any funds from the recently passed referendum be used on the project.
