$2 million approved for Billerica high school study


Billerica Town Meeting members earlier this month approved $2 million to study the feasibility of replacing or renovating Billerica Memorial High School, which opened in 1955. Funding for the study will come from the town’s free cash account. The feasibility study will include land and soil studies, preliminary site plans, schematic designs, architectural and engineering designs, cost estimates, and bid documents, among other items. The study is a step required by the Massachusetts School Building Authority for state funding of a high school project. A related article calling for the establishment of a 16-member high school building committee also was passed by Town Meeting. The committee will be made up of members of the community and School Department as well as town board appointees. The building committee will be charged with investigating educational and physical concerns at the high school and overseeing the study and any subsequent construction project.
