The Bancroft School Redevelopment Plan
 
The Fiscal Impact Report has been posted to this website on the "Documents/Resources" page. It is preliminary and subject to refinement during the weeks ahead.  It contains the information which was presented to the Planning Board and the public at the special Planning Board meeting of June 16, 2011 along with the background factors and calculations on which the presentation was based.  As revisions are made to the analysis we will post them to the website.

 
The power point presentation which guided the discussion of the Bancroft site redevelopment alternatives at the June 15th Planning Board meeting has been posted to the website, on the “Meetings” and “Documents/Resources” pages.  Thanks to all those who attended and shared their perceptions of the respective plans!  For those who were not able to attend, there will be a follow up meeting of the Planning Board by the middle of July to further review the concept plans.  It is likely a vote may be taken on the alternatives at the July meeting; if so, the results will be forwarded to the Commissioners for their consideration and future action.

 
A special Planning Board Meeting has been scheduled for June 15, 2011 at 7:30pm in the Borough Hall Auditorium. During this meeting the three alternative conceptual redevelopment plans will be presented and discussed. Everyone interested in the process should attend the meeting to see the alternative conceptual redevelopment plans.
 
The guiding principles for the Redevelopment Plan have been posted to the website. These principles are based upon public input received at the various stakeholder meetings and the Open House, as well as our own assessment of principles that will ensure that the redeveloped site contributes positively to the Borough’s historic and neighborhood character and quality of life. See the Documents/Resources page of this website (right side under Current Redevelopment Plan Process Documents) to view them!
