Sandy to take over Cedar Ridge campus posted on 11/01/2017

Students from Cedar Ridge Middle School in Sandy are expected to move to their new campus at the Pioneer Building following the Thanksgiving break this month. That will allow the City of Sandy to take full possession of the CRMS building in early December or January and proceed in earnest with the goal of creating a recreation hub.

Sandy City Manager Kim Yamashita noted that the city will begin some stakeholder meetings toward the end of November, while Opsis Architecture will perform a detailed analysis of the facilities to determine what can be kept or repurposed.

“We want to spend the time and money doing this evaluation to ensure we are using money wisely and having the lowest impact on the environment as possible,” Yamashita noted.

Opsis, who is under contract with the city to devise a master plan for the facility for March 2018, will also help to determine how to do the project in phases and what aspects, such as the pool or a community center, to prioritize first.

“We have limited funds initially, and I want to get the most bang out of the buck,” Yamashita said, noting that the community is intent on keeping the pool operational as much as possible. “At some point, we may look at temporary closure to do work, remodel or reconstruction. Right now we just don’t know what it’s going to take, so we need these experts to come in and go over it.”

Initial stakeholder meetings are expected to take place with various groups, including the Friends of the Sandy Pool, senior programs and Maverick Aquatics, while public open houses or forums are expected at a later date.

“It’s very exciting,” Yamashita said. “It’s also, with the amount of staff we have; it’s going to be a challenge.”

“We want to make sure that when all of this stuff is happening, we maintain current service and minimize negative impacts as much as we can,” she added.
