Voters will be asked to redo DMS site with youth center

$2.5 million project


The building committee is hoping to make the Bartlet Street access two-way, giving traffic intended for the youth center a second means of accessing the building through a parking area to the south of the school, according to Huntress.

The driving lane for buses and parent pick-up and drop-off wrapping around the school would remain one-way, flowing from Chestnut Street to Bartlet Street, according to Huntress.

Town fire and safety officials are reviewing the plan, and Huntress hopes they’ll side with the committee, he said.

“I think that’s too much of a demand on Whittier [Court] to have every vehicle show up and come in that direction,” he said.
