Cromwell residents vote today on construction of new middle school

The future of a $58.6 million project to build a new middle school lies in the hands of town residents, who will vote Tuesday in a referendum. Residents can visit the high school on Donald Harris Drive to cast their votes between noon and 8 p.m. The proposed project contracts Hartford’s Tecton Architects to construct an updated middle school at the same location as the existing building. The Cromwell Middle School Building Committee assembled multiple presentations about the blueprint and funding of the new school. The committee formed in early 2022 and invested $100,000 to study the possibility of construction. The cost to taxpayers will be offset by a series of state grants. The building committee estimates the state will be able to reimburse $22 million of the $58 million total cost. Taxpayers will cover the rest. The committee hopes to break ground on the new school in the summer or fall of 2023.
