Plans unveiled for school construction projects in Chippewa Falls

Chippewa Falls (WQOW) – The concepts and plans for the new Chippewa Falls Stillson Elementary School are out, and school officials are eager for these concepts to come to life.

Architectural firm ATS&R, out of Minnesota, is looking for local contractors, because they want to keep the money at home.

Back in April, Chippewa Falls taxpayers approved a $65 million referendum for construction projects of the elementary, middle school and high school.

“Now is where it’s exciting, because the work is up to us to show them that they trusted us with those dollars and that were going to use those dollars wisely and in the best interest of the kids,” said David Czech, president of the Chippewa Falls Board of Education.

The new Stillson building will be a mile away from the current location, on more than 37 acres off of County Highway J. The building will cost roughly $21M, and should be done by July 2020. The district also wants to add more space for the middle school, and a new STEM lab for the high school. The contractor will be chosen in March.
