A special town meeting is being held in Newtown tonight about tearing down a Yogananda Street home. According to minutes of the most recent Board of Finance meeting, First Selectman Pat Llodra said that the meeting will be held the 15 minutes before the Board of Selectmen's meeting on the 17th , which is set for 7:30pm.
The property is where the Sandy Hook School gunman lived with his mother and took her life.
The Legislative Council previously gave approval to raze the home, which was given to the town for a dollar by the bank holding the mortgage. The property, which is surrounded by a wooded area, will be allowed to return to its natural state.
