Screen Shot 2014-10-31 at 6.08.16 PM

The Greenwich Public Schools are holding a public forum on the New Lebanon Elementary School feasibility study on Monday, November 10, 2014 7:00 p.m. at New Lebanon School, 25 Mead Ave. in Byram.

Released on October 9, 2014, the Study presents preliminary analysis and recommendations for expanding the school. Final plans will not be developed until funding is secured and a Building Committee is established. Public comment is important even at this early point in the process.

Why is the Board proposing a building project for New Lebanon School? The Racial Balance Plan approved by the State Board of Education in July 2014, proposes an expanded school for the New Lebanon community in order to address overcrowding and provide a high quality educational facility for neighborhood and magnet students.

    I’m sure the President of Byram Neighborhood Association will be at the meeting speaking up for the community just like he did with the Mill Street Bridge situation ( Greenwich Time article, Byram leader lashes out over traffic issues Wednesday, May 16, 2012) . Oh, wait there is no president of the Byram Neighborhood Association Mike is running for office ergo no neighborhood association. Isn’t that always the way, just when you really need the neighborhood association it goes and runs for office.
