We Demand a New Cranbury School
Cranbury Elementary School Parents & Community Petition
Dear Mayor and Members of the Common Council,
We, the undersigned, are petitioning for your commitment in writing, and in action to secure funding for a new Cranbury Elementary School. This remedy is long overdue, with planned and budgeted renovations having been promised and not executed multiple times over the years. It is a critical failure for our children and residents of the Cranbury area who provide a major portion of city revenues. It is unacceptable for the City of Norwalk to provide a sixty year-old obsolete school building that has been repaired, but with little upgrades to its electrical and HVAC infrastructure, and possesses outdated entry points, windows, solid surfaces, flooring, and facility amenities, as well as a failing outdoor overhang.
We are no longer interested in waiting for city officials to take action. We are demanding immediate action and a public announcement and your commitment to secure and put aside funds for a new building without further delay. We insist that a new school building, as committed to by the Rilling administration, be in the capital budget for 2020-21 such that the project will be filed with the State of Connecticut by June 30, 2020. We look forward to your commitments to this community in writing, as soon as possible, and a public announcement of your future plans to begin this project prior to the various impending deadlines that are approaching.
Please provide your information and sign below if you stand with the Cranbury community to ensure our students receive a new school building:
