Plans for Mt. Lake Public School’s aging building will start to take shape with the unanimous choice of an architect announced by the board last week.

Architects Rego and Youngquist of St. Louis Park got the nod from a pool of five. Paul Youngquist will serve as architect.

“It was felt that Paul Youngquist seemed to best reflect the values of our community and was someone who we believe would be able to tap into the needs of the district in a sensible way,” commented Tim Swoboda, who was selected to serve as chair of the building committee.

“We felt like Paul Youngquist was a good fit for our community and we are confident in his abilities to relate to our rural lifestyle. He will be able to provide us options and solutions for our district to consider to meet the educational needs of our community for years to come,” added Swoboda.

Building committee members include Bryan Bargen, Jerry Haberman, Bruce Swanson, Cheri Hanson, Vern Peterson, Tom Appel and Shawn Naas.

The firm does most of its work with schools, as Youngquist notes, “We specialize in worship, medical and educational facilities in the state of Minnesota with the educational

facilities market constituting the largest portion of work for our firm,” said Youngquist. “We deliver high quality service at every stage along the way.

“We work hard every day to create learning environments

that meet today’s educational and societal needs. We consider one of our strengths to be the ability work as a team with the district and community.

“Through effective communication and coordination, we bring together a community where the value of each student is identified and nurtured resulting in a facility designed just for you.”
