Selectmen's Meetings were held to describe process and
reasons for site selection committee's selection of Griffin's
Dairy as the proposed site for the new middle school and to
get feedback from the town about this site or any
alternatives. The School Committee has voted to accept the
recommendation to construct a new middle school on the
town-owned land at Griffin's Dairy;  the Selectmen have taken
no vote on the subject.  A final decision will be made at a
future Town Meeting and by resident voters.
