Alpine bond proposal would build 5 new schools

School officials in Alpine, Utah, want to build five new schools as part of a proposed $210 million bond.

The Daily Herald of Provo says Wednesday the bond would also pay for the reconstruction of a dozen schools and renovations to improve earthquake safety at 14 schools.

Superintendent Vern Henshaw says the bond will likely be on a 2012 ballot.

Henshaw says the spending plan released Wednesday is a starting point that can be revised by the school board after public feedback.

The new schools would include a middle school in Eagle Mountain, along with four other elementary schools, which the cities have not decided where they would be built.

Assistant Superintendent Rob Smith says the bond could also pay for other minor repairs and improvements.
