In a prepared statement, the mayor said:
“Now is the time to build a new elementary school for the children of Carter and their teachers, and we are closer than ever to seeing that it happens. I appreciate the Knox County Board of Education’s willingness to work with my administration to see that this project continues to move forward.Expect a rubber stamp from the IDB.
“One more step remains in this process before construction on the new school begins and the longtime promise of a new Carter Elementary becomes a reality. Next week, the IDB will vote on the legal documents associated with the development of a new Carter Elementary School. If the documents are approved, the Partners Development team could begin construction as early as next month.”
And another fist bump.
