An emergency capital construction project was approved recently by the Chautauqua Lake Central School Board of Education.

After viewing a presentation on the damage caused by frost last month, the board decided to approve the work.

At the March 25 board meeting, Benjamin Spitzer, superintendent, said the building had sustained serious damage.

"The majority of the building is used for storage," he said during the meeting in March, adding that there are some areas used by sports teams for students to congregate. "It is a very important building in the spring."

The field storage/field house building was recommended for repairs by the architectural firm, Clark Patterson Lee.

The board approved the emergency project as a Type II action, which does not subject the project to review under New York's State Environmental Quality Review Act.

According to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the State Environmental Quality Review Act requires sponsoring or approving governmental bodies to take into account the impact projects or activities will have on the environment, and reduce or alleviate them.

In other news, the board was informed that Chautauqua Institution will offer two free school assembly concerts as a part of a small arts grant. A jazz chamber group will present two concerts for students in different grade levels. The concerts are slated for May 15.
