South Windsor High School field upgrades get design approval, but funding still pending

Town officials have approved the school district’s plans for major field upgrades at South Windsor High School. The $7.5 million needed for the project must now be approved in a town-wide referendum for it go forward, though the Town Council declined to set a date for that public vote when the matter arose at a January meeting. The project also includes a new driveway from the Wapping Annex parking lot to the student parking lot as a way to provide more traffic flexibility throughout the high school campus. The Board of Education originally asked the Town Council for a March 12 referendum date to allow for construction to begin in the spring. Officials expect to discuss the referendum again in June, with the vote most likely to be included on the ballot for the November election if approved.
