PORTLAND — The Portland community is invited to virtual community forums Wednesday, May 13, to learn about design progress on school construction projects at Longfellow, Presumpscot and Reiche elementary schools.

The public will also be able to share their thoughts and visions for the schools. City voters in 2017 approved a $64 million to renovate four elementary schools. Renovation work on the first of the four projects, Lyseth Elementary School, is underway. That project is on track to be completed by 2021.

The district has contracted with Harriman Associates architectural and engineering firm to lead the Lyseth project and design the remaining schools.

The three hour-long forums, which will be held via Zoom, are staggered to focus on each school project separately. The Presumpscot Elementary School Forum will run from 5:30-6:30 p.m.; Reiche Community School, 6:45-7:45 p.m.; and Longfellow Elementary School, 8-9 p.m.

The meeting can be accessed at zoom.us/j/93595241413?pwd=eHpzL0IvN3BSTUpuSTgzbXMvMjNpQT09 with the password 400704 or by telephone by calling on of these numbers: 1 (312) 626 6799, 1 (646) 558 8656, 1 (253) 215 8782 or  1 (301) 715 8592.
