Norwalk OKs $76 million for SoNo school, but officials mum on location

Plans for the school’s development are moving swiftly through the approval process, having already received a green light from the boards of education and estimate and taxation, as well as one of the Common Council’s committees. On Monday, the Board of Estimate and Taxation approved the reappropriation of about $76 million to go toward the new SoNo school. The proposed school will seat 682 students from preschool through fifth grade. Norwalk Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Alexandra Estrella confirmed the city has a parcel in mind but did not identify the spot’s location. Assuming the Finance Committee approves of the recommendation, the use of the $76 million and the SoNo school plans will be heard by the council at its Jan. 25 meeting, Lo said.
