GARNER — While the council meeting last Tuesday largely focused on broad schools issues as well as traffic, Wake County Public Schools also presented a number of design elements for the new high school in Garner.
Concerns about the design were raised regarding parking, sewer system and football stadium size at the meeting, but WCPSS says all the parameters fit their guidelines, and notes the plans meet all town requirements.
The new school designed to house 2,350 students will feature 327,640 square feet in a three-story building made primarily of red and beige brick as well as corrugated silver metal wall panels.
The site, nearly 58 acres in size, will also include a football stadium, baseball and softball fields, a practice field, and 843 parking spaces.
The school will have four access points. Two driveways on Hebron Church Road, which runs along the long side of the roughly rectangular lot, lead into the car loop and to staff and visitor perking. A driveway on Clifford Road and another on New Bethel Church Road will each lead to the bus loop and on-site student parking.
