Construction will soon begin on a new elementary activity center in the Chaffee School District.
At a recent meeting, the school board accepted a bid of $1.33 million from Penzel Construction for the project.
After years of problems, Chaffee Elementary School's battle against a lack of space will end this summer.
According to superintendent Dr. Arnold Bell, the facility will include a cafeteria, lobby and space for events such as concerts and kindergarten graduation.
The building will be separate from the current elementary facility and will be used for physical education classes during the school day.
The project is being paid for through a $1.48 million bond issue voters approved in November.
