The purpose of Roosevelt Exterior Project continues to be to improve student safety, campus aesthetics, and the functionality of the school site. Important elements of the plan include playground improvements, the installation of bicycle racks and pedestrian paths, and the development of a “through block” walkway that provides for easy and safe access from Jackson Avenue to Lathrop Avenue. This revised plan includes an improved North Lot that retains 36 parking spaces, while retaining a total of 50 off-street parking spaces throughout the site. Updated landscaping, improved lighting and signage, and the introduction of shade and ornamental trees remain a part of the reconfiguration.
