Site selected for proposed Lake Elmo school
If voters approve a bond referendum this fall, Lake Elmo Elementary could be moving 3 miles to the south. School board members recently approved a purchase agreement for a parcel of land in Lake Elmo, which is contingent upon passage of the bond in November. The 47 acre site is located on the northwest corner of Lake Elmo Avenue and 10th Street North, kitty-corner to the Cimarron community. See video below.
District officials are proposing to construct a new 1,100 student-capacity school on the site, which would replace the existing Lake Elmo Elementary. The current building is more than 100 years old, and while it has had numerous additions and improvements over the years, it is near capacity with little room to expand further. Lake Elmo is the fastest growing city in the state, and enrollment at the elementary school is expected to grow by more than 200 students in the next 10 years.
The proposed site is located in the center of the community’s population growth and has ample room for a larger, more modern school building, as well as green spaces, playing fields, and outdoor learning spaces.
