MIFFLIN — The Iowa–Grant School District is working on a remodeling project for Iowa–Grant High School.

The proposed project would cost about $2.1 million, with about $1.5 million of that to be borrowed.

Plans developed by HSR Associates of La Crosse include moving the library to the current auditorium and removing the stage at one end of the high school gym, moving the music room to the current agriculture and welding shop area, and moving the ag and vocational tech rooms into the current library.

HSR also proposes building an addition to house a stage on the opposite end of the gymnasium and building an agriculture addition. The $2.1 million estimate does not include a new stage.

The proposed project includes $1.5 million in borrowing. Financing options include a bank loan, a state Board of Commissioners of Public Funds loan, or a Qualified Zone Academy Bond. The latter requires a 10 percent donation from the community.

The school board’s vote Aug. 26 gives school district residents 30 days to circulate a petition to request a referendum on the project.
