The group’s initial meeting of Dec. 5 saw new members sworn in and briefed by Town Attorney Jeffrey Donofrio about some of the legal aspects of their duties. On Dec. 14, the group made a visit to the two properties where the new buildings are slated for construction. The first stop was the undeveloped parcel of land once owned by the Casertano family, located at Marion Road and Jarvis Street. The current plan calls for the new school to be constructed on existing fields, while the current Norton building will be demolished after the project is complete. Solan acknowledged that construction work would impact the neighbors, but he said steps will be taken to minimize and mitigate that. The meeting then moved to the task of developing the Requests for Qualifications (RFQs) for architecture and construction services.
