JLA has already begun to initial outreach and work with staff from the Building Department, School Department, Parks and Open Space Department, Recreation Department to develop the action plan, timeline and deliverables for this phase of the project.

Update on Change to Transportation Board Agenda for November 21
The item discussing the Baldwin School and upcoming traffic study of the surrounding area has been taken off the Transportation Board’s November 21st agenda. The Building Committee for the 9th Elementary School at Baldwin has not yet met nor decided any transportation measure they want to recommend; the Co-Chairs want to hear more from the public before getting to that point.
At some point in the future the Building Committee Co-Chairs anticipate going to the Transportation Board after further discussion. The best way to stay updated is by subscribing to notices through the Town’s Notify Me “Building Committee for the 9th Elementary School at Baldwin” email list.

8 Sites Removed from Consideration “for now”
Also on September 8, assured that the three finalist sites were viable, the boards considered a motion to remove other sites from consideration at this time. Each board held a separate vote to remove these sites from consideration at this time. In doing so, they were clear that these sites could potentially be considered at a later date.
The boards also announced additional meetings with Town Commissions and Departments where site selection for a new elementary school would be discussed.
