Demolition begins at former Hamden Middle School as revitalization project continues

A portion of the former Hamden Middle School on Newhall Street is being demolished, as efforts to remediate and redevelop the site continue. Dale Kroop, town economic development director, said Monday the two buildings being knocked down used to be the school auditorium and cafeteria. The Hamden Economic Development Corporation received a $600,000 grant through the state Brownfield Area Revitalization program in February 2017 to pay for the project, according to Kroop.
