Sand Hill School Clark-Haddad Building Will Not Be Moved!

Sand Hill School/Clark-Haddad BuildingThe Sandwich Board of Selectmen, on January 19, 2012, voted 4-0, with one abstention, to leave the Clark-Haddad building in place. A proposal by the Sandwich Chamber of Commerce to move the Clark-Haddad building and turn it into a visitors center was turned down.

Before the vote, Ellen Carlson, a member of the Sandwich Historical Commission said her board would seek public input at a yet-to-be scheduled meeting in March or April. The forum would include a building tour and would solicit ideas for possible uses. “It’s not in terrible shape. It’s not falling over,” Carlson said. “We have some time to think about this.”

The Board of Selectmen voted 4-0 to jointly request funding for the project. The issue will be on the May, 2012 Town Warrant for voter approval.
