Community Workshops (March 2018)

The building committee overseeing the feasibility study of Wahconah Regional High School will hold four community workshops at the end of March.

Members of the design team and the building committee will seek participant feedback about what the high school needs in the future.
Attendees will also get an overview of the design process.

The workshops will be held Tuiesday, March 27 at 5 p.m. at the Windsor Town Hall and 7 p.m. at Wahconah Regional High School.

Two workshops will also be held Thursday, March 29, one at Becket Washington School at 5 p.m. and another at Kittredge Elementary School at 7 p.m.

In January, planning and architectural firm Drummey Rosane Anderson Inc. officially began assessing options to renovate or replace the school — part of a feasibility study approved by voters in the seven-town Central Berkshire Regional School District last April.

Wahconah Regional High School suffers from outdated plumbing, heating, mechanical and electrical issues and inadequate facilities for art and music.

The building is over 55 years old. 

Any actual construction still needs voter approval. 

The target date for district towns to vote for or against whatever the building committee recommends is spring 2019. 

Projects of this sort generally cost $40 million to $80 million, Shawn Armacost, co-chairman of the Wahconah School Building Committee, previously told the Eagle.

The feasibility study will cost up to $850,000, with the Massachusetts School Building Authority to pay about half the amount.
