Norwalk reconsiders school building projects in wake of delays

City officials announced last week that the project, money for which was originally in the proposed 2019-20 capital budget, would have to be deferred a year because an open space land swap — mandated by the state — would not receive approval by the June 30 deadline. As a result, the subsequent construction project to either build a new, or renovate the existing Columbus School and turn it into an International Baccalaureate elementary school called the Norwalk Global Academy, would also be delayed. The implications for future projects, as well, could be significant.
