Creswell Bond CHS Projects

Seismic Rehabilitation Grant & Project Status

Building A (Old Gym, locker rooms, weight room) and B (Commons) were previously evaluated in the fall and winter of 2022, and a Seismic Evaluation Report was created for these areas in February 2022. From that report, CSD applied for a competitive grant through the State of Oregon’s Seismic Rehabilitation Grant Program, and was awarded a $2,499,455 grant in June 2022.

With that grant funding the seismic rehabilitation work for buildings A and B began in June 2023. This work includes the architectural and engineering aspects as well as the selection of the CM/GC Contractor. The primary construction will begin in June of 2024.

Buildings E and F were seismically evaluated in the Summer of 2023, and an additional grant application was submitted in December 2023 for building F. Building E will have its application submitted in the fall/winter of 2024. Buildings D and C will be seismically evaluated at a later date and application to follow.

New Digital Cameras Add to Improved Safety & Security

As the district focuses on the safety and security of our students and staff, we recently began the updates and additions of new digital multi-lens cameras to all three campuses. Progress is still being made to add and update cameras on each campus, but so far, 15 new cameras have been added and 14 analog cameras have been converted to the new digital cameras. Additionally, the network infrastructure was updated, including improvements to the server that controls the security cameras. This work also included more digital storage.

CHS Playfield is COMPLETE!

With just a few remaining touch-ups over the past weekend, the CHS turf field and track facilities are now COMPLETE! Over the summer we showed the transformation from May until August. This video tells the rest of the story. We are THRILLED with the results!

CHS Playfield Ribbon Cutting - October 6th

After several months of hard work, we are within sight of the last few steps to complete the CHS Playfield. To celebrate the completition of this project, we are celebrating with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, October 6th at 6:30pm. Prior to the ribbon cutting, we are inviting Creswell families and community members to join in the celebration with a free community event from 5:30-6:30pm. We look forward to celebrating with our community, and anticipate additional celebrations to come as we continue to complete the bond projects.

CHS Turf Field Evolution - Preparing the Foundation

This summer local crews and contractors have been working diligently to excavate and prepare the ground at CHS for the installation of our new turf field and track surface. Watch this short video to see the evolution of this project from June until early August 2023.

Ready for the starter pistol!

Creswell School District has signed its contract with Beynon, the industry leader in track surfacing since 1974. You may already be familiar with their work. Their most notable project in our neck of the woods: Hayward Field! Host of the 2022 World Athletics Championships.

With this signed contract, we are excited to release the renderings of the new field and track that we will see come to life this Fall. You may notice that the track will now be red, instead of black, and the Creswell Bulldog logo will take center stage at mid-field. We can’t wait for our students to be able to access and use this state-of-the-art space at the CHS campus!

Below is the rendering of the turf field with CHS Bulldog logo:

Partnership with CSD Council for CHS Turf Field

Creswell School District has partnered with the Community Sports Development Council to help bring the highest quality turf field to Creswell. The CSD Council is a decades-old national alliance that has committed annual resources to support the development of premium synthetic sports fields. Creswell is one of many projects that the Council has partnered with. Other area partners include Cottage Grove and Pleasant Hill High Schools. However, the Council has hundreds of projects that span the U.S. and international locations. You can learn more about the CSD Council here: https://csdcouncil.org/

With this partnership, Creswell School District is able to stretch bond finances to cover more projects. This summer, Creswell business, Marple Excavating, will prep the field, and the Council will develop the turf and complete the installation. Following the turf installation, the track will be resurfaced and a D Zone installed. We think the end result will be a TOUCHDOWN!

Stay tuned for more updates!

Summer 2023 Projects

After overwhelming support from the Creswell community in May 2023 with the passing of our bond, we have taken steps to start making headway on projects that will improve facilities to be felt as early as the Fall of 2023 for our students. Over the next several months we will be appointing an oversight committee and providing continuous updates to the many projects in the works on our three campuses.

Stay tuned for more updates!
