Welcome to the Cabot Elementary School Design and Construction Website. This site is devoted to informing the community about the project with important information, announcements and supporting documents. With regard to construction activities, the project is well underway with building abatement and demolition complete. Culvert activities are ongoing and are expected to be complete in early December. Utility work on Bridges Avenue work is ongoing up to the new culvert connection at Bridges Avenue.  The dewatering system has been doubled to eliminate as much ground water as possible. Foundation excavation for footings and foundation walls will be starting in early November, at the classroom addition. Batting cage work is anticipated to be completed by the end of November and the relocation of the baseball/softball field is well underway.

Please note that the following scheduled upcoming meetings:

  • November 9, 2017 – 6:30PM Community Update Meeting (City Hall, Room 211) – a meeting flyer is posted to the “agendas” tab

Note: There will be monthly update meetings throughout construction on the 2nd Thursday of each month, at 6:30PM, a half hour prior to the regularly scheduled Newtonville Area Council meetings.  Also note that site security/time lapse cameras are installed and are operational. Feel free to log on 24/7 and view construction activities via this  website:
