Feasibility Study Questions Answered in Northbridge

By MyFM's Rick Michaels - The Town of Northbridge is providing residents with a list of answers to the most frequently asked questions regarding a Feasibility Study for the 50-year old Edward Balmer Elementary School. The town feels the school has reached a point that it no longer meets today’s building codes and the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) has visited the school and agrees.  The Feasibility Study is investigating the condition of the school with the goal of developing a cost effective, sustainable and educationally appropriate solution to the aging Balmer School.  The MSBA administers and funds a program of grants for school projects and as many as ten design alternatives were discussed and evaluated by the School Committee with the help of three-community forums.  Why not just repair the Blamer School…how much will this cost…what’s the timetable?  These questions and more are answered for you.  You can find the list on the Northbridge Town Website.
