Dr. Holmes feels with the community use of the cafeteria and commons area. He feels the restrooms need an upgrade in a big way. He also feels the auditorium seating could use an upgrade as well to make it a more comfortable place for the community to come. Based upon what the community has to say, the Board will then determine what they can do and what they can afford.
