It’s hard to miss that large pile of dirt in the northwest corner of the Broadway Campus. It has many of our community members asking, “what’s that?” The two-stories of soil marks the location of the last building being constructed on the Broadway Campus, the Mapleton Arts Center, or the MAC.
The MAC officially broke ground early in December and construction crews are now working on the footing and foundation.
Some features of the new space include a 900-seat auditorium, a 1:1 scale Black Box theater for practices, an outdoor amphitheater and dedicated classrooms for orchestra, choir, band, and dance.
In the next few weeks, the dirt pile will disappear, and in a few months, the MAC will go vertical!
The MAC will serve students district-wide and is scheduled to be open in 2021!
The Welby Learning Park now has an entryway! Beginning on the northeast side of the park, visitors will walk through a large wooden archway that leads to 2.8 acres of Expeditionary learning opportunities.
Near the treehouse, crews have begun to place the steel bridge ramp leading up to the classroom space.
The learning park is scheduled to be completed by the end of November!
