Demolition of the portable school structures and hazardous materials survey of the reaming school was completed in 2020. This funding request will fund the abatement of hazardous materials, engineering, bidding and demolition of the main school building. The project includes foundation removal and seeding the project site.

The former elementary school was closed in 2009 by the Barnstable Public Schools during a major reconfiguration of the schools districts. It was used for two years as a storage facility to support the surplus school furniture from the closure of four facilities across the district. During that time the school was heated and kept clean to avoid deterioration. Twice the facility, and its accompanying land, was advertised for lease by the school department to no avail. In 2012, the school committee declared the building surplus to their needs and transferred it to the Town manager’s control. The Town attempted to lease the space, also to no avail. It has now been decided that the best course of action is to demolish the structures on the property, and perform basic site restoration (loam and seed), in preparation for a “to be determined” future use.

To be funded by $360,011 of the March 2022 Bonds - 0.68% of the 2021 Capital Budget
