PBC Subcommittee Recommends Field House Project

July 31, 2012 by Josh Morgan

The Cheshire High School boys' locker room has been a hotly-debated topic the last few months after a plan to renovate the current facility was put on hold by the Cheshire Town Council.
However, after researching the issues, the Cheshire Public Building Commission has recommended the Town scarp any renovation ideas and, instead, invest in a new field house that would not only house new locker rooms but also a concession stand, public bathrooms, and possibly a press box.
The PBC subcommittee made the recommendation at last night's meeting, with the expectation that the full PBC would approve the matter this week, in time for a presentation to be made to the Town Council on Thursday when it begins discussing the Cheshire Public School District's Capital Budget requests.
The Cheshire Board of Education has requested more than $1 million in this year's Capital Budget plan for building the new facility, however, members of the PBC admitted last night that do not have a solid number as to how much the proposed 6,000 to 8,000 square foot project would cost.
For the full story of last night's meeting, see Thursday's Cheshire Herald.
