The Oak Park and River Forest High School five-year facilities plan will be the focus of debate on the Nov. 5 edition of the Doris Davenport Show with Doug Wyman, which airs on Sundays, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., on WPNA Radio, 1490 AM. 

When most voters go to the polls on Nov. 8, they’ll be asked to vote on whether to fund a $44.5 million, five-year facilities plan at the high school using up to $25 million in referendum bonds. 

The high school’s plan would include the demolition of the village-owned, 300-space garage, the construction of an estimated $21.4 million, 25-yard by 40-meter swimming pool, plus a roughly 240-space new parking garage on the site of the old one, and expanded performing arts and learning spaces.

Monica Sheehan, a member of the anti-referendum group OPRF Pragmatic Pool Solutions will debate Ellen Pimentel, a member of the pro-referendum group Vote Yes D200.
