Residents hear plans for Higgins construction

(Continued)

After construction, the current building will be demolished and its site converted into ballfields. No kids will be allowed near the site when the building is taken down, due to small amounts of hazardous materials, Marks said.

By 2017, he concluded, “The pain ends.”

The new school population will shrink as some students transfer to the new vocational school, he said.

Kenneth DiNisco of DiNisco Design said that landscaping will send water to retention ponds away from residents.

“If there is something we are missing or a concern you have, we want to hear about it,” DiNisco said.

”This was really good,” resident Rosemary Bevins told the gathering. She applauded a diagram of traffic movements shown on a big screen. After the meeting, she said, “I’m happy with what was presented today. I feel a lot better now.”

”I was very pleased with how the meeting went,” said Bettencourt.

Another meeting will be held next year, after construction begins.
