Elizabethtown City Council this week took the first step to annex property at 1323 St. John Road designated for a new school.
The property, owned by Hardin County Schools, is the future home of the new G.C. Burkhead Elementary School, which is relocating from Charlemagne Boulevard in Elizabethtown.
The cost of the project is estimated at around $17.2 million, according to construction documents. Net program space for the building is projected at roughly 74,301 square feet. The school should be completed next December.
