The Ridgefield School District will hold an open house later this month to receive comments and showcase planning documents for its upcoming capital facilities construction.

The open house will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, May 31, in the Ridgefield High School Commons, 2724 S. Hillhurst Road. Representatives from LSW Architects and members of the Core Project Teams, who help shape the project’s designs, will be present at the meeting.

Ridgefield voters approved a $47 million bond package in February designed to update facilities and address overcrowding and safety concerns at each of the district’s four schools. The construction project is the district’s first in 20 years, officials said.

Since the bond’s passage, the district has organized professionals to perform geotechnical testing, survey the construction sites at each campus and arrange the sale of the bonds, officials said.
