Newtown Planning and Zoning Commission approval of the new Sandy Hook Elementary School design takes effect on Monday. The Commission unanimously approved the plans at their public hearing last Thursday.
The plan has also been approved by the Inland Wetlands Commission and the Aquifer Protection Agency. State officials still need to approve the plan. The proposed redesign of the Dickinson Drive site includes a more than 87,000 square foot building and parking for 150 vehicles.
Construction could start as early as this fall.
