BOZEMAN — The Bozeman School Board will ask voters for permission to spend $4.8 million to purchase an 80-acre parcel of land that could be home to a future high school.
The vote could take place as early as August, said Gary Griffith, the construction representative for the district.
"Still, we're talking 15 years before we're thinking we can build," Griffith said. "Not any faster than 10 years."
If approved by voters, the school district will buy the land using part of a $55 million bond issue voters approved last fall.
The bond issue called for spending $36 million to renovate Bozeman High School, $14 million to build a new middle school and $5 million to buy land for a new high school.
