One of the options identified for a new Waltham High School is to locate a new building on our present site. In order to accommodate the demands of constructing a new building while the present Waltham High School remains operational, one plan proposes a new building on the southeast portion of our site (on the parking lot and slightly into woods that are part of the school property). Because of concerns about any impact on the Paine Estate property, our project architect, SMMA, has agreed to: Mark the border between the high school property and Paine Estate property with stakes Raise balloons to show both the corners and height of the building These tasks will be completed by the afternoon of Friday, September 23; stakes and balloons will be kept in place through the evening of Sunday, September 25. Residents are welcome to view the site, during daylight hours, from Friday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. through Sunday afternoon at 6:00 p.m. Visitors should use the main entrance to Waltham High School and should park in the school lot. Additional information as well as an opportunity to provide feedback about the Waltham High School Building project can be found at the building project website.
