Brookside School Redevelopment Project Community Input Meeting: Your Input Is Needed to Make this a Green Project

The Brighton Central School District is proposing to redevelop the Brookside School Complex as a K-2 school. The redevelopment is contemplating a two-story section of the building that would house classrooms for either first or second grade on the second floor. Due to community input about the need to make this redevelopment a green building, the district is beginning to consider green building design elements for this project. More community input will be needed to make this priority a reality. ColorBrightonGreen has prepared a letter to the School District asking that the redevelopment include a green design to reduce the building’s carbon footprint and to keep school operation costs low. But the support of school district taxpayers is needed. Please consider attending the community input meeting or submitting your support of green building planning to the School District in writing. Our letter to the school district is available on our website.
