Monta Loma Outdoor Improvements Project

Graphic: What do you want to see at ML
The Board of Trustees approved Carducci Associates on Sept. 9, 2021 as the architectural design firm for the Monta Loma Outdoor Improvements Project. MVWSD and the City will work together to develop and guide the design process and to hold multiple meetings to hear community input. The goal is to receive all input to create a comprehensive design that provides for many school and community uses.

Outdoor Areas Imagery Packet (click here): These images represent the way the school and community currently may use the Monta Loma outdoor spaces for social gatherings, recreation and outdoor learning. We also hope the images spur ideas of what else may be developed in this beautiful, shared space in the future. (Imagery packet for students and teachers.)
