Taking a methodical approach in Wellesley

Posted by Ralph Ranalli September 26, 2007 07:22 AM


The town’s 12-member School Building Committee is taking a methodical approach to the largest, costliest building question in town history: what do about Wellesley High School’s aging building. They’ve boiled the challenge down to two main strategies: either build a new high school building or renovate and add onto the existing 1938 structure.

To help with the decision, committee members toured 10 area high schools that used one of the two approaches to build or renovate their own schools.

The members will share their experiences and findings with the public at an open forum on Tuesday, Oct. 2 at 7:30 p.m. at town hall.
