2018 Bond

November 27, 2023 Update

In 2018, Lincoln Consolidated School voters supported a $25 million bond to improve facilities for security, athletics, fine arts, transportation, technology, and more.  It is so exciting to see the completion of projects around the district.

The final project of the 2018 bond, the construction of the new stadium building, has faced delays due to the state permit process. As we near the project’s completion, we are excited to be able to provide a facility within the stadium complex where teams can get ready and strategize for their games. We expect the building to be fully operational by the beginning of the spring athletics season.
