Pirie Associates and CERC have been engaged by the Town of New Milford to study options for the adaptive reuse of a historic school and its grounds. The Colonial Revival style school, which was built in 1930, is listed on both National and State Registers of Historic Places as part of New Milford’s historic district. In addition, the building contains a stained glass window and murals created under the Works Progress Administration’s Federal Art Project. The decomissioned school housed municipal offices for several decades, but is currently underutilized and in need of repair.
On Thursday, May 23, Pirie Associates is facilitating a community brainstorming session to build trust in the community and develop a shared vision for the school.
