Southwest Middle School Getting a $50 Million Overhaul

Southwest Middle School is slated for a $50 million makeover with most of the campus being demolished and rebuilt. Construction, expected to begin around the end of the year, will be done in stages in a way that classes will remain on campus, The Ledger reports. A conditional use permit was approved by the Lakeland Planning and Zoning Board Tuesday and still needs City Commission approval. | Zoning documents
