2019 Capital Bond Program

How do we create learning communities for the greatest thinkers and most thoughtful people... for the world?

2019 Capital Bond Project Updates

  • The 2019 Capital Bond was passed by West Linn-Wilsonville voters on November 5, 2019. The $206.8 million capital bond includes seven major projects spanning across the entire school district. To receive regular 2019 bond updates, please sign up for the WLWV-Bond-Information ListServ.

    Project Updates are available on each project homepage. Go to the Bond Projects tab and select a project to see photos and progress updates.

    You can also follow our Linkedin page for project updates as well as notices of solicitation for construction and goods/services. All Requests for Proposals (RFPs) will be advertised in the Daily Journal of Commerce (DJC) and the district bond website. Linkedin will be used to alert followers of solicitation opportunities with links to the DJC.

    The bond includes the following major projects:

    • New Middle School at Dollar Street - Project consists of building a new middle school on a district-owned 21 acre site in West Linn to accommodate 850 students. School building, parking, street improvements, track and field are all part of this upcoming project.
    • Renovation of Riverside High School on the previously-named Athey Creek Middle School site.
    • New Primary School at Frog Pond Site - Project consists of building a new starter 350 student enrollment primary school at district owned 10 acres in the Frog Pond area of Wilsonville.
    • Wilsonville High School Performing Arts Addition - Project consists of adding on a 600 seat theater and support spaces to the existing WHS. Project also includes renovating the current theater/spaces, parking, site circulation and softball field work.
    • West Linn High School Stadium and Parking - Project consists of increasing current WLHS stadium seating as well as site circulation/paths and increased parking on the site.

    Smaller District Projects include Facility Improvements around the district. The district has a strong history of protecting the community’s investment in facilities. District-wide improvements include a wide range of projects that address critical issues such as accessibility upgrades, equitable access, Title IX compliance, renovations for Career Technical Education (CTE) learning environments, and safety improvements.

    There will be a variety of bid opportunities of varying size made available, and that we hope to see strong interest from the contracting community.

  • WHS Auditorium Project Update

    The WHS Auditorium Addition and WHS renovation project has reached another significant milestone: TCO (Temporary Certificate of Occupancy).  As such, the school programs have moved into the new space allowing Todd Construction to begin phase 4; the renovation of existing space into the new Black Box theatre and CTE spaces. 

    The move into the new space provided the additional benefit of hosting three events in the space this last week. This has provided the staff and students the opportunity to start learning the new systems and start the process of performance testing the new performance venue with a “soft open”.   

    The project team is excited to welcome the public on a larger scale next fall when the entire PAC is anticipated to be completed.  Please stay tuned this summer for the Fall Grand Opening celebration announcements

    If you have any questions, please contact the Project Manager.
