The MPO held a brief, special called meeting instead of the regular session because the notice was not advertised within the required time frame. Apparently, the legal notice was lost in cyberspace. Business originally placed on the regular agenda will be discussed at a special called meeting at noon on April 3, in the Municipal Building at 190 Church St.
At the MPO’s called session, Montessori Kinder founder and director Brigitta Hoeferle said a 7,800-square-foot school to be located on the development site will accommodate 120 students through the sixth grade.
“We can flip on the same property and have a building for another 120 students,” she said. “I think it will be a great thing for the community.”
The school began seven years ago with three children at her present site on Tasso Lane. Sixty children ranging in age from 3 months to 9 years old are currently attending the private school that serves children with abilities and disabilities.
She said construction on the new school will begin soon.
