The city is looking for an architect to design the seven-classroom annex to Ellsworth Avenue Elementary School. The roughly $7 million to $8 million project is expected to add much-needed space at the pre-kindergarten and elementary-school levels, which have seen growing enrollment. The district has applied for a state grant to cover 63 percent of the cost. Architectural firms are asked to submit qualifications packages, so the city can create a short list for which company to use, according to the bid for the project. Qualifications must be submitted by 2 p.m. Aug. 6 to Charles J. Volpe Jr., purchasing agent, 155 Deer Hill Ave. Danbury, CT 06810. The goal is to complete design plans by January, start construction in June 2021 and move students into the building in August 2022.
