Whitefield considers expanding the Career and Technical Center
The first, an addition to White Mountains Regional High School to house an expansion of the Career and Technical Education Center (CTE), will be voted on by ballot during the day. Whitefield voters will join those from Lancaster, Jefferson, Dalton and Carroll in deciding the issue. It requires 60 percent approval.
Voting is today from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the C.D. McIntyre building on Highland Street.
The CTE addition to the existing building would be about 70,000 square feet. About 2,000 square feet of space would be for the proposed biomass plant and storage building.
The existing CTE offers 12 programs. New programs, if the center was approved, would include a 2-year welding program, an upgraded hospitality program, and possibily cosmetology/spa management and biotechnology.
Tonight, Whitefield voters will take up the issue of whether they want to build a new municipal building on Route 16 next to the fire station. That meeting starts at 7:30 p.m. at the McIntyre building.
If approved, the building would house town offices, the police department, fire/rescue and the recreation department.
At present, the town is renting space in the Astle Block at $28,000 per year. But there are no guarantees about the rent in the future. In addition, while it is downtown, there are safety and liability issues with that site, town officials have said.
Town meeting will be held in the auditorium of the C.D. McIntyre Building on Highland St. at 7:30 p.m.
Among the other 24 warrant article is a request for $95,000 to conduct a townwide revaluation, the sum to come from the Revaluation Capital Reserve Fund.
