Stamford’s Roxbury School to be replaced with $86M K-8 facility

With funding mostly secured for a new Westhill High School, officials are now turning their attention to the school across the street: Roxbury Elementary School. In all, the project is expected to cost $86 million. It already cleared one hurdle, receiving authorization from the city’s Planning Board on Tuesday. If city officials sign off on the project, it will be submitted to the state for reimbursement by the end of June. The amount the city receives from the state, if the project is approved, would be 60 percent of the price tag, or $51.6 million. That refund rate was just recently approved as part of a state budgetary bill that was signed by Gov. Ned Lamont this week. Previously, Stamford received a 20 percent reimbursement for new school construction projects. The initial plan is to complete the new Roxbury, an estimated 24-30 month construction phase, by 2027.
