I guess I'll jump in early. If my memory serves me correctly , I remember just finishing a high school renovation two years ago. I am locked into opposing any new renovations for ten years.

Hello John, The Renovation Review Committee was created to review the completed renovation project you speak of, not to plan a new one. You'll find more about the committee here: http://brookfield.patch.com/articles/selectmen-appoint-bhs-renovation-review-committee.

Just wanted to share that the High School Renovation Review Committee meets on the second and fourth Monday evenings at Town Hall. That is a change from the original first and third Monday's.
