Central office to be built for city schools

Two years from now, residents of Madison and employees of the central office of Madison City Schools will be enjoying a 5,000 seat, multi-purpose stadium and a new building to work in that will include a teacher resource center.
City School Superintendent Dr. Henry Clark said contracts are pending to purchase 51 acres of property behind the Spencer Square shopping center off Celtic Drive to construct a new central office/teacher resource center and a 5,000 seat, multi-purpose stadium. Clark said the cost of the property is $1 million, but cost figures for the construction of the new facilities have not been calculated.
"I had a meeting with several residents of the Homeplace subdivision that is near this property and I told them what plans are under way for this property – pending its purchase," Clark said. "It was a good meeting and once plans and drawings have been done, I plan to meet with them again."
Clark said once the land is bought the central office/teacher resource center and the stadium will be built at the same time.
"The central office will be moved out of the Sullivan Street location and into this new building – which will also contain an auditorium," Clark said.
According to the superintendent, within the next seven to 10 years, another high school will be built in Madison. Approximately 80 acres of property on County Line Road has been purchased for the new high school. With Bob Jones High School needing a new stadium for its various sporting events and with a new high school in place in under 10 years, Clark said the multi-purpose stadium will solve those needs.
"This property is in an ideal location for the stadium and we plan to build it on the eastside of the property near Celtic Drive," Clark said.
