Architects hear public comment on proposed VHS design

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Architects for the new Valdosta High School had some more input to consider Thursday night regarding the school's design.

The school district held a public input meeting at Valdosta Middle School Thursday night to give the architects an opportunity to explain the design to the public and for administrators and the public to ask questions about it.

Around a dozen people attended the meeting, the majority of them school administrators. One person in attendance asked about the possibility of adding solar panels to the school, to which the architect responded by explaining that solar panels were not planned to be installed as of Thursday but the building could easily be retrofitted to accommodate solar panels in the future.

Other questions raised included the schools sustainability, specifically whether LED lights would be used in the new building, and the security of the new campus.

Dan Chappeuis, a parent of a future VHS student and current VHS administrator, said he came out because he wanted to hear how everything was expected to come together.

"Being involved as a parent, as an administrator, to see everything they've done to build this project," Chappeuis said. "[I] couldn't be more excited about this building being completed."

The school district hoped to have the school ready in time for the start of the 2018-2019 school year.
