Construction Update: Fences and Play Structures

With funding from Measure L, North Shoreview will be receiving new fences and play structures.  NSM representatives met with district staff several times over the past year to provide input on the least disruptive designs that could still achieve safety objectives. New black, fine-mesh chain link fencing will be installed along the sides of the school in coming weeks, and improved play structures and matting are tentatively expected to be installed over the summer.  Ornamental fencing and gates will be added at the front of the school later.
