Danbury officials get an update on high school renovations

A Danbury City Council member sought an update this month from the Public Works Director about the addition at Danbury High School.  Councilman Irving Fox, a former Board of Education member, acknowledged that the heavy part of construction would start when the school year is over, but he wanted to know about the timeline to determine usability of the area around the school.  He cited the track, the stadium and playing fields. 


Public Works Director Antonio Iadarola said there's been some discussion already about what part of the grounds will be completely off limits, but they are working to pinpoint which athletic fields and what part of the facility will be useable during construction. 


There is a significant amount of work planned at DHS, most notably is the Freshman Academy addition.  Two architects were selected for the work and contracts have been signed.  A Construction Manager has been interviewed.  Schematic design has started various parts of the building.  Danbury has gone out to bid for Phase 1, the roof replacement. 


The biggest priority is public safety, and balancing that safety with still allowing sport and other activities to occur.  Iadarola says the decision will be made collectively with the Board of Education.
