The Sherman Board of Selectmen held a special meeting earlier this week about a new Sherman School playground. The spending request is for up to $400,000, to be approved in a town meeting.
The date for a town meeting to gain approval has not yet been set.
School district official say the Board of Education has been working with playground manufacturer Little Tikes on a proposed replacement project. The plan is to replace the lower playground in a way that it can be potentially reinstalled later if future building projects require its relocation. The proposed price tag includes money to remove the surface at the pirate ship playground and replant grass seed.
The Sherman Board of Selectmen’s next regular meeting is scheduled for August 27th at 7pm. Due to the pandemic, the town meeting will be held via Zoom.
