The second of three community workshops to get feedback from residents about plans for a new Center School will take place Jan. 24 from 9 to 10:30 a.m. in the Hopkinton Middle School library. The workshop will focus on the four site options being evaluated: renovation and new construction adding to the current Center School on Ash Street; construction of a new kindergarten-Grade 1 school next to the Elmwood School, which would continue to serve students in grades 2 and 3; constructing a new school on the Irvine property, off Hayden Rowe Street near EMC Park; and a new building on the Todaro property, also off Hayden Rowe Street but adjacent to Fresh Water Farm. The town’s Elementary School Building Committee plans to make its decision next month, with final design and construction plans expected to be ready for a vote at Town Meeting in the fall. Depictions of each site are on display at the Hopkinton Public Library, and can be viewed online at schoolproject.hopkintonma.gov.
