Listening session scheduled on use of two vacant schools

To encourage and facilitate a community dialogue about how the currently vacant O’Connell and Bingham schools might be re-used, the Bristol Planning Commission has scheduled a public outreach meeting (“listening session”)for Saturday, June 14.

The two-hour meeting will be held in Meeting Room #1 at the Bristol Public Library, 5 High St., between 9:30 and 11:30 a.m.

The discussion that takes place during this listening session will help guide and inform the Planning Commission as part of its process of developing a community vision for the potential re-uses of the O’Connell and Bingham school buildings and sites, said a press release from the commission.

Members of the Planning Commission and its staff will be in attendance at the session, and interested persons are encouraged to attend and participate. Written communications may also be submitted prior thereto.
