Norwalk officials favor constructing new high school on football field

The Common Council’s Land Use and Building Management committee appears to be poised to follow the Board of Education’s lead and recommend the design option to build the new high school on the existing football field at its meeting on Wednesday. Committee members in favor of option B, the recommended design, believe it will be less disruptive to the daily learning environment compared with option A’s phased approach. Option B also presents less risk financially, said Council Chairman Tom Livingston, but the city is still preparing to request additional funds form the state to complete the $225 million project. The need for more funds was realized in December when the schematic design and cost estimates for option A were completed, according to Alan Lo, Norwalk Building and Facilities Manager.
