Town Meetings: Pelham, Windham eye big-ticket items
The project includes a new two-story addition and would increase the total square footage of the high school by nearly 50 percent, from 88,000 square feet to 130,000 square feet.
In addition to the existing entrance, there will be a new community entrance to the school in the new addition.
The entrance will also allow for easy access for the public to the new performing arts space.
The project looks to eliminate much of the traffic congestion at the school by creating more parking to the right of the building and changing the location of the bus loop.
The payment during the first year of the bond issue would include $597,500 in interest payments, with a property tax impact of $124.66 for the owner of a home valued at $292,000, the average home valuation in town.
The tax impact to the average homeowner during that year would be about $443, he said.
Local voters will have the chance to sound off on a variety of town and school budgetary issues this weekend, during the Windham school and town deliberative sessions.
Among the articles up for debate are contracts with the district's teachers and office staff.
The Windham town deliberative session is planned for Saturday, Feb. 8, at Windham High School. The meeting begins at 9 a.m.
