The members of the former Community Center Preliminary Planning and Design Committee (CCPPDC) wish to re-affirm our support of the current school building project. Having worked collaboratively as stakeholders in the Ballfield Road campus vision, we support the current building plan on its merits.
This is old news. Our final report, presented publicly to the Board of Selectmen and Selectwomen and which has been posted for review, clearly states the opinion of our committee... it reads:
"We congratulate the School Building Committee and the many others who helped design what was a very effective June 9 Special Town Meeting. We look forward with great optimism toward what we hope will be an equally decisive moment for our schools and our town on December 1 and December 3, 2018, when we hope the funding for the school building will be approved. And we eagerly await the opportunity, having celebrated the opening of our new school sometime in the 2023 horizon, for Town leadership to pick up where we have left off, and to add the second planned centerpiece for the Ballfield Campus.
One encouraging early indication of the commitment that folks in town have for both projects, and their successful integration on the Ballfield Road Campus, is the momentum that is developing around a private fundraising effort, with the Lincoln School Foundation likely to be in the lead"
The Community Center studies and reports, as found on our website, provide the supporting details. We encourage folks to review our final report.
