YOUR VIEWS WANTED ON CENTER SCHOOL REUSE PLAN
Town Meeting voted in 2019 to declare the old Center School surplus property. The Affordable Housing Trust and Board of Selectmen have partnered with the Barrett Planning Group to help create a plan for the property, which is located at 65 Thaxter Avenue. Residents will have multiple chances to give their thoughts. Here’s how!
Register to attend a virtual community meeting about the project via Zoom on April 27 at 7:00: https://tinyurl.com/CenterSchoolAbingtonApril27
Provide feedback and input via an online survey, open from April 11-May 6: https://tinyurl.com/CenterSchoolSurvey
The Surplus School Building Committee evaluated both the Center School and North School back in 2018 and recommended both be demolished and kept as open space until the town decides what to do with the land. Both schools remain standing, but in varying degrees of decay.

Should Abington have a mayor? A representative Town Meeting? A 7-member Select Board? These are some of the questions the commission charged with reviewing Abington’s Town Charter is asking in its public opinion survey. The 10-question survey is available here.
