CT provides $50 million more to fully fund Norwalk High project

Two years after it was announced, the state legislature has approved an additional $50 million to fully fund the Norwalk High School project. Pending Gov. Ned Lamont’s signature, the state budget brings the total funding to $239 million for the new high school construction. The project was originally approved for $189 million in September 2020. The revised funding maintained the 80 percent reimbursement rate for the project. The estimated construction cost for the new high school is $225 million. With the additional funds, the city can move forward with the construction of the pool as part of the overall project. The state previously also approved a 50 percent reimbursement rate for the construction of a natatorium. Moving forward with the recommendation to build the new school on the existing football field, the project is now in the schematic design phase.
