More Parking Possible On East Side Of EHS Gym

Persons coming to Elgin High School on a Friday night and finding no place to park may one day see that problem fade away.
No action was taken last week, but the District #18 Board of Education discussed the possibility of developing a 60’ by 200’ parking lot which would be located on the east side of the school’s gymnasium.
Superintendent Dan Polk said he has had preliminary discussions with Bygland’s about what it would take, in terms of moving dirt, to build up that area for a parking lot. Preliminary estimates, he said, for the dirt work were between $1,000 to $1,500. However, as discussion continued, there would be some additional costs such as building underground drainage as well as putting rock in the parking area.
Polk told the board he would attempt to get more information for them to consider at an upcoming meeting.
