El Paso County Colorado District 49

New community center for Falcon

In 2005, Falcon residents voted in favor of a mill levy for School District 49. With that came a promise: Falcon Middle School would become a community center.District 49 is keeping the promise. The current middle school will be vacated in December when middle-school students move to the old Falcon High School.”We are delivering on the promise we made,” said Nancy Wright, interim superintendent for D 49. “The building will be open to the Falcon community.”The building will also serve as an alternative school for nontraditional students, with a night school program offered as well.Local groups like the organized seniors and FAIR – Falcon Area Issues Roundtable – will be able to use the facility for dinners, meetings, seminars, etc. Nonprofit groups will pay nothing. Businesses will have access to the building, too, and a committee will set fees for their use. Pikes Peak Community College is planning to lease space at the middle school, until the college finds a permanent home in Falcon. The same arrangement has been offered to the Pikes Peak Library District.Wright said the facility will open next year, after some minor remodeling. The building will be open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.”We are just so happy to be able to offer this to our community,” Wright said.
