Voters in Medinah School District 11 defeated a measure to allow the district to borrow $8 million for building upgrades and consolidation, according to unofficial vote totals.

Unofficial results show more than 60 percent of residents voted no, with 1,267 of 2,096 total votes against borrowing and all precincts reporting.

Money would have funded construction of a wing at Medinah Intermediate School, which would then house the district's primary school. The existing Medinah Primary would have been eliminated.

Remaining money would have funded major security and traffic safety upgrades to Medinah Middle School.

Officials said school district property taxes would have increased by roughly $156 a year for the owner of a $350,000 home.
