BATH, Maine — Residents in each of the four communities that make up Regional School Unit 1 voted by at least 3-to-1 on Tuesday in favor of bonding up to $7.2 million to fund the district’s portion of a new, $75.4 million high school.
Voters in RSU 1, including Arrowsic, Bath, Phippsburg and Woolwich, voted 3,195-1,020 to issue up to $7.2 million in bonds to build a $75.4 million bond to build a new high school to replace Morse High School and incorporate the adjacent Bath Regional Career and Technical Center.
The state of Maine would fund 91.4 percent of the new building on land at Wing Farm Parkway in Bath, according to the district.
Another $700,000 is slated to be raised through fundraising over one to three years to cover project expenses not eligible for state funding.
Arrowsic voters supported the measure 194-43; Bath residents 1,853-448; Phippsburg, 528-187; and Woolwich, 620-342, according to preliminary results from city and town clerks.
