Gym Demolition Up for Discussion Monday Night
During a jam packed Monday meeting, the Board of Selectmen will vote on whether to officially go forward with the February demolition of the high school gym.
Wilmington's Board of Selectmen has plenty on its agenda Monday night. But the biggest item is likely the state of the high school project and more specifically the scheduled demolition of the school's gymnasium.
The meeting is slated to take place inside Town Hall, Room 9, with executive session to discuss the demolition plans at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will open to public discussion at 7 p.m.
First on the agenda is Cuong Bui, who seeks a common victualer license to open Pink Melon Frozen Yogurt at 269 Main Street.
At 7:05 p.m., board members are scheduled to discuss the North Intermediate School window project, which has been delayed after being approved at Town Meeting.
After the status of that project is discussed, the major agenda item will be taken up at 7:20 p.m. Board members will hold a public discussion about the likely February demolition of the high school gymnasium, the first step in high school construction despite the pending appeal at Superior Court.
Following that conversation, selectmen are likely to vote to make the decision official, chairman Mike Newhouse said last week.
Communications items on the agenda include a letter from the project manager of the North Intermediate project, a notice of appearance to Superior Court regarding the high school appeal, a letter from Police Chief Michael Begonis about a violation by CTC Gold and more.
Selectmen will also consider approving several requests, including officially approving the license for the Wilmington Farmers' Market.
