01 Project Overview
The leaders of Botkins Local Schools assumed their community would only support renovations to their existing buildings. But a Fanning Howey-led Pre-Bond process uncovered a surprising path forward.

Working with school leaders, Fanning Howey held a series of visioning and community engagement sessions that uncovered the community’s desire for a new PK-12 school. This input resulted in a revised master plan and a bond campaign focused on the benefits of new facilities. The bond passed on the first try, and the school district now has a 21st century PK-12 school that reflects the vision of the community.
