Two forums to be held on Region 16 school project


The Region 16 Board of Education will host two public forums next week on a proposed multi-million elementary schools and administrative facilities improvement project.

The first one is at 7 p.m. Monday at Long River Middle School, 38 Columbia Ave., Prospect, and the second one is at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Woodland Regional High School, 135 Back Rimmon Road, Beacon Falls.

The project calls for a new preschool-through-grade-5 school on property at 75 New Haven Road, as well as additions and renovations to Laurel Ledge School in Beacon Falls and a district office proposed for a portion of the old Algonquin School.
