I recommend if care what the old high school becomes you attend The voters wanted it used for the public use but money is almost non existence for renovation for that use. The Maturo administration want to sell it for senior housing even though hardly no demand in that market. The only practical use is rehab for education Lots of government grants save the tax payers money combing our schools

Personally I think this building is one big eye sore. It has zero historical or architectural significance. That building has more scrap value than anything. It sits on an extremely large and valuable parcel of land however. Our schools indeed need rehab and updating, but each already sits on good land, with available space. We should seek grants for each school. Rebuild or enlarge them to accommodate more students and consolidate. The High School property is worth more without that albatross sitting on it.

knock it down, sell the land and build a new pool with the proceedes
the November 2011 election the voters of East Haven had the right to select a choice of what to do with the property located at 200 Tyler Street known as “The Old High School”. The voters were given a choice of what to do with the property and selected the legal choice to the property located at 200 Tyler Street being rehabilitated and used for community purposes and that the town should never sell this building, the tax payers that voted have a right to be heard and their decision to keep it in the hands of the people of East Haven. To go against the wishes of the Taxpayers the same people that the town relies upon for its tax dollars is erroneous and let me remind you that If in fact it is the stance of those who seek not to abide by the vote of residents of East Haven and seek to implement their own agenda denying the vote that took place in November 2011 then that plan is indeed a heartless slap in the face of East Haven Residents and the voters who cast their ballot are strongly against the implementation of any other plans that which were voted on and supported by majority vote. the November 2011 vote of the Majority of registered East Haven voters that was as follows: 1> The town should never sell this building 2> the tax payers voted to keep it in the hands of the voters 3> The “Old High School” at 200 Tyler Street be reconditioned and dedicated to the town for community purposes as would it would be an asset to the East Haven Community.

Wow....your run-on sentences are amazing! And where, Hoff the Amazing, are we supposed to get the money? I want to win the lottery--doesn't mean it's gonna happen. I voted for the community purpose, but in reality there were no costs presented to the tax payer to underline the importance that each choice comes with a cost. Maybe the former administration should have focused more on costs while they were in office, and put associated costs with each referendum item. But of course, the previous administration DID NOT care about spending more, and therefore, failed to put the associated costs.

LOL.....that's a funny.... (I must admit). Running a town isn't very exciting or interesting.....

EH VoiceofReason - the costs associated with the conversion/updating of the building to either community-based use or educational use will be approximately $24 million. The only difference between the 2 is that the community-based updates could be made in small increments, while the educational updates would have to employ the "big-bang" approach, You are correct that these numbers were not made part of the verbiage that appeared on the ballot, but they were made public prior to the election.

Have a great 4th Luigi. I'm going to Ferraro's later today to pick some Delmonico's for the grill tomorrow.
