Alexandria School Board Will Consider Concepts For New MacArthur Building

This week the School Board will consider two concepts for the new Douglas MacArthur Elementary School building. The concepts are named “Y” and “Forest” for identification purposes. These concepts were narrowed down from five original proposed concepts following input and feedback from the Douglas MacArthur Advisory Group and the wider community.

According to Alexandria Gazette, “Last week, three concepts were shown to the Douglas MacArthur Advisory Group, MacArthur staff and the wider community at three separate meetings and an open house, during which the consensus was a preference for either the Y concept or the Forest. There was consensus among the community and staff not to move forward a third concept, the Coil.”

As per Alexandria Gazette, “The School Board will vote on one concept at their meeting on Feb. 6, 2020. After the selection has been made, ACPS will begin the Development Special Use Permit process with the City. The design will continue to evolve, even once a concept has been approved, as DLR Group architects continue to flesh it out through June 2020. The new school is expected to open doors in January 2023.”
