Do you approve of the Elmsford school district's plan to consolidate the elementary and middle school?

No, it's not worth the extra taxes67%
The Elmsford Board of Education approved the capital plan in October, which would cost an estimated $21 million in renovations and raise taxes by an average of $340 per year. The plan would shut down the Carl L. Dixson Primary School building and expand Grady, consolidating the district's schools to one common campus along South Goodwin Avenue.
The board is collaborating with the village government in efforts to keep costs as low as possible. Elmsford Mayor Robert Williams has said that if the capital plan passes, the village would buy the Dixson building from the school district and transform it into a combined Village Hall, police headquarters and senior community center.
Williams said the village would make money from selling its old Village Hall, now at 15 S. Stone Ave.
Registered voters living in the Elmsford Union Free School District can vote Wednesday between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. in the music room at Grady Elementary School,, 45 Cobb Lane.
