The Town of Madison Wants to Hear From You!
The Town is seeking public input regarding the future of the Academy School, formerly the Hand Academy that was gifted from Daniel Hand in 1884. The original school building was demolished and replaced with the current building in 1921 which served the Madison school system for 83 years until the school was closed in 2004 and transferred to the Town of Madison in 2011.
Studies of this historic building suggest that renovation could be costly and the site has been vacant for over a decade. This past year, a plan by the Shoreline Arts Alliance to rehabilitate the 94-year-old school and transform it into a cultural center for the arts was voted down by the Republican members on the Board of Selectmen.
Please join the conversation at the Public Workshop!
WHEN: Tuesday, March 14 at 7:00 pm
WHERE: Polson Middle School Cafeteria, 302 Green Hill Road
