Milwaukie High School to be demolished,
replaced with new building


When North Clackamas School District voters passed a $433 million capital bond in November 2016, the largest project they authorized will be the demolition of the old Milwaukie High School building and the construction of a new high school at the site. A community meeting was held Wednesday, May 24, in the MHS library to discuss the project. Another community meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. on June 27 at the same location. Here is a video of the May 24 event:
