Billie Martinez Elementary Bond Project
Proposed Repairs and Renovation in the 2019 Bond Issue
- Enhance safety and security, including improved entry
- Replace aging door hardware for improved function and security
- Remove and replace worn carpet and flooring, abate asbestos where needed
- Paint and refinish walls and ceilings based on greatest need

With approval of the Citizens Bond Oversight Committee, a 12,000 square foot addition will be constructed on the northwest corner of the current building. This addition will remove eight portable classroom spaces and provide additional bathrooms. Cuningham Group will be the architect on this project. The general contractor will be hired in November. This addition is paid for with the proceeds from the bond sales.
New furniture arrived at Billie Martinez Elementary School this week, and will be ready for students at the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year. Thank you voters of Greeley and Evans! This is all possible because of you.
Martinez Elementary School is one of the first schools that will have its bond projects completed. Beginning this summer, construction will begin on a secured entryway for Martinez. As well, the school will receive new door hardware (locks and handles), some new doors where necessary, new temperature control system, and some new paint and flooring. The school has also submitted a plan for instructional/career and college preparation upgrades.
The school will also repurpose its library to create a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math lab, including outdoor learning spaces.
As well, the roof is being replaced at Martinez Elementary School with funding from the Mill Levy Override, and possibly a BEST Grant. Awarding of the BEST grants should be announced in late May, 2020. If District 6 receives the BEST grant for the Martinez roof, the MLO dollars will be reassigned to another project.
