Conant, Kimball demolition hearings scheduled

I meant to post this yesterday but didn't get to it.

The magnificent school buildings - Conant and Kimball - eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places, along with seven houses abutting the Kimball site, are scheduled to be demolished as part of the Concord School Board's elementary school consolidation plan.

Public hearings to consider alternatives to demolition will be held by the Concord Heritage Commission Demolition Review Committee.

All hearings will begin at 4:30PM in the City Council Chambers on the following dates:

* Tuesday, June 15 – Conant School Demolition
* Thursday, June 24 – Seven Homes, Kimball Block
* Tuesday, June 29 – Kimball & Morrill Schools

Come and Let your ideas, recommendations, and plans be known. These community resources should not be destroyed!

In addition, if you can't make the hearings and would like to submit testimony, email City Planner Doug Woodward, the liaison to the Heritage Commission. His email is Doug will see that all comments get to Fred Richards, who is the chairman of the demolition review committee.
