$258M Westhill, $52M Lockwood projects partially funded by state; Stamford schools want more

Funding for the construction of a new Westhill High School and a building to house an expanded pre-kindergarten program made it through another step Tuesday morning after a state subcommittee voted to approve them. Both Stamford projects would be reimbursed 20 percent of the overall cost of the work, but Stamford officials have said that’s not enough, particularly for the Westhill project. Of the two Stamford projects, the biggest is the reconstruction of Westhill, a project estimated to cost $258 million, according to the state’s Department of Administrative Services. Beside Westhill, the district also had identified four other schools — Cloonan Middle School, Hart Elementary School, Roxbury Elementary School and Toquam Magnet Elementary School — as buildings that need to be torn down and replaced.
