OR Council votes 5-1 for Scarboro Park preschool site

Meeting in a special session Monday night, the Oak Ridge City Council voted to accept the School Board’s recommendation that the city’s new preschool be built at Scarboro Park on Carver Avenue. The vote was 5-1 with Rick Chinn voting no and Kelly Callison absent. The current Oak Ridge Preschool is located on New York Avenue in a 70-year-old building that no longer meets requirements to serve as a preschool. A new preschool has been on the city’s wish list for several years now and the project is estimated to cost around $9.1 million.
