Looking through a regional newspaper online, I found this article which discusses priorities for capital projects for a high school (Portage High School in Indiana). On the list:
relocating a fence
changing wallpaper in the auditorium
replacing the sound system in the gymnasium and auditorium
installing a new video system at the high school
and the topper:
Crosswalks: constructed of asphalt embossed and dyed to look like brick. One would be 25 feet by 37 feet in size and be placed between the student parking lot and PHS East building.
A second, installed between the public/student parking lot and the stadium, would be 45 feet by 37 feet in size and include a 12-foot-by-12-foot embossed logo of the school's mascot, an Indian head.
According to the article, the cost of the crosswalks is $37,700. The mascot would cost an additional $4,400 and white striping would be an additional $107 for a total of $42,207.
"I think it makes a statement," said member Deb Ekdahl, adding the district needs to maintain and improve the looks of the high school grounds. "We need to keep up and be competitive."
