When the Iowa Falls School District released plans earlier this year for a proposed $28.5 million project that would build a new elementary school and expand a portion of the high school, the criticism from some members of the community was swift. The process was too rushed, they said. The location at the high school would present new problems, traffic would be an issue, and it was just too much money.

The bond was narrowly defeated in March – falling less than 100 votes short of the 60 percent approval that was needed.
