There will be a public meeting to view plans for the new East Hamilton Middle School on Tuesday, at 6:30 p.m. at East Hamilton School.
TWH Architects representatives will be at the meeting to provide an overview of the project and plans for the new middle school for the Missionary Ridge Learning Community of Hamilton County Schools. The meeting will be in the theater at East Hamilton School with Mayor Jim Coppinger and Superintendent Dr. Bryan Johnson beginning the program.
Parents and the community will be able to view plans developed by the architects and talk with district leaders and architects at the meeting. There will be a question and answer session and the opportunity to provide suggestions for consideration for the new school.
The location of the new East Hamilton Middle is near Apison Elementary School. The school is a project in the $125 million building plan approved by the Hamilton County Board of Education last October. The Hamilton County Commission approved funding to address school facility needs in September.
The building plan includes a new building for Harrison Elementary, additions to Snow Hill Elementary, renovations at Howard Middle, renovations for Tyner High that will include a merger with Tyner Middle, and renovations to the Tyner Middle facility that will be the new home of Chattanooga School for the Liberal Arts. As architects complete initial drawings for projects, additional meetings will be held in those communities.
