The first of three community engagement meetings for District 113 residents to give input on the Long Range Facility Plan for Deerfield and Highland Park high schools will be held this evening at Deerfield High School.
The 16 month plan considers infrastructure, repair and maintenance, technology and education needs at both high schools, according to Natalie Kaplan, director of communications for District 113, in an email communication dated Aug. 16.
Since then, District 113 hired architectural firm Perkins+Will, and Gilbane, a construction management firm, as well as created a resident steering committee to oversee project design, Kaplan said.
Perkins+Will will present differing information at the meeting tonight and two subsequent meetings; residents are encouraged to attend all of them to express viewpoints and get a full picture of the plan.
Following tonight's meeting at 7 p.m. at Deerfield High School, the next two public meetings, Oct. 2 and Nov. 27, are both scheduled for 7 p.m. at Highland Park High School.
