3/5/2012 - Public Hearing on School Building Project


The Mansfield Town Council invites and encourages all members of the public to participate in a public hearing to provide Council members with feedback regarding their intention to put to referendum in May 2012 a proposed school building project.  All members of the public are invited to share their thoughts regarding the proposed building project at the public hearing scheduled for 7:00pm on Monday, March 5, 2012 at the Mansfield Middle School auditorium.


In May 2010, the Mansfield Town Council received a recommendation from the Mansfield Board of Education.  After extensive study, the Council has selected a preliminary recommendation to build two new preK-4 elementary schools on two of the three existing school sites and complete various renovations and improvements to the Mansfield Middle School.  The new elementary schools would open in September 2015 and the Mansfield Middle School renovations would be completed by September 2016.


Materials and information related to the project are available at www.mansfieldct.gov.


All members of the public are encouraged to attend and participate at the public hearing.  Anyone unable to attend the hearing but wishing to communicate to Council members may do so by speaking during the public comment section of Town Council regular meetings scheduled for the 2nd & 4th Mondays of every month at 7:30pm in Council Chambers, 4 South Eagleville Road, Mansfield.  Comments also can be submitted in writing to Council members via email at TownCouncil@mansfieldct.org or by hard copy in c/o of the Town Manager’s Office, 4 South Eagleville Road, Mansfield, CT 06268.
