Learn More About the Crown Road Campus:
- The Crown Road Campus in Liverpool is home to many students in our Special Education and Innovative Education programs.
- OCM BOCES has leased the campus for 32 years.
- OCM BOCES has an opportunity to purchase the building for $12.85 million.
- Purchasing the facility will save districts money.
- The purchase requires a referendum set for Tuesday, November 19, at four OCM BOCES campuses: Crown Road, Main Campus, Thompson Road, and Cortlandville.
Benefits of Purchasing the Crown Road Campus Include:
Based on long-term costs for leasing this site over the next 20 years, the purchase of this building would save money for our component districts.
Purchasing this site offers a sound investment opportunity for OCM BOCES and the districts we serve, just as purchasing a home gives the homeowner a source of equity and anticipated appreciation.
- The Crown Road Campus is centrally located for most of our component districts, with easy access from major highways.
- The building is in good physical condition, with updated HVAC, well-maintained floors, and rooms that meet the needs of all students. Spaces include regular classrooms, specialty rooms, specially-designed sensory rooms, activity rooms, a full cafeteria, and a playground.
- This is a good time for OCM BOCES to buy the property. The owner gave us first right of refusal after receiving a purchase offer for $12.85 million.
This building offers 83,600 square feet of space on 15.6 acres. It was designed for our students at OCM BOCES and continues to meet our needs. Why would we want to move anywhere else?
