Future of Highland Building on agenda Tuesday

Continue reading below

Discussion among local officials and committee members continues regarding the best use of the town-owned Highland Building, at the edge of the Carlisle Public School campus. At its last meeting, the Highland Committee discussed the often-suggested possibility of developing the building into a community space or cultural center. Other options under discussion are using the building as an adult day facility for the state’s Department of Developmental Services, or as affordable housing, but the building’s infrastructure issues and its proximity to the school present challenges to both possibilities. As a community space, groups that have expressed interest in using it include Scout troops, arts groups, and local organizations, with some space possibly designed as a gallery, a function room, or offices. The Highland Committee plans to discuss its ideas and recent findings with the Board of Selectmen during its 7 p.m. meeting Tuesday in Town Hall.
