An indoor sports complex will begin taking shape now that Montpelier Schools have begun interviewing architects.
The Board of Education reviewed and ranked various architectural proposals for the complex. The board appointed Superintendent Jamison Grime, Carla Rice, Darrell Higbie and Cristopher Wurm to negotiate the contracts.
The indoor facility will provide an exercise room and a walking track plus other facilities for students.
The district has put aside the money needed for the project so it can pay cash, Grime said.
