Farmington voters overwhelmingly approve additional $9.7 million for high school

Voters overwhelmingly approved an additional $9.7 million for the construction of a new Farmington High School Thursday. The unusual December referendum passed 1,787 to 815 with 12.9 percent of the registered voters in Farmington showing up to the polls. This vote was the second time Farmington voters have been asked to approve money for the high school’s construction. In June 2021, voters passed the referendum for a $135.6 million appropriation for construction of a new 239,000 square-foot high school on Moneith Drive, including the demolition of the existing building and some site changes. As a result of the approved referendum, the tax burden caused by the project will increase from $466 over five years to $491 over that period for the average taxpayer.
