III. NEW BUSINESS

A. Welcome School Board

B. Procurement of High School Design Services

In October, voters approved $54 million in general obligation bonds to build a new high school at Dimond Park. This school will be approximately 52,000 square feet smaller than the previously designed school that was halted by voter initiative. The reduction in size will require a new design. The typical practice for the CBJ and the School District is to select architects through competitive proposals. However, staff has concluded after a detailed analysis that significant savings in time and money can be achieved by re-hiring the architects who designed the first project non-competitively.

The attached memorandum and schedule explain this staff recommendation in detail. The staff has also requested Craig Mason, a Seattle architect who served on the peer review team for the first design, to review the memo and provide comments. His letter will be available Monday.

The High School Project Team and the Juneau School Board reviewed this memorandum in draft form at its November 2 meeting and unanimously concurred with staff's recommendation to proceed to hire the design team of Minch, Ritter, Voelckers and Fanning & Howey.

I recommend the Assembly approve the recommendation of the Project Team and School Board by motion.
