Vacant elementary school razed


The Robert F. Crowley Elementary School is no more. Town Administrator Michael McCue said in an e-mail last week that the vacant building “is pretty much removed.” Town Meeting voted last May to spend up to $905,000 to raze the building on Fagan Drive, which was built in 1962, vacated in 2002, and slotted for demolition by the town in 2012. American Environmental of Holyoke removed hazardous materials from the building late last year, and JR Vinagro Corp. of Johnston, R.I., completed the demolition last week, McCue said. He said the town has not determined what to do with the property.
