The Day reported that at the Wednesday liaison
committee meeting of the City Council, Town Council, Representative Town
Meeting and Board of Education the issue of turning over the former Fitch
Middle School to the town was once again raised leaving town officials
wondering what next to do with the building, one that held Groton students 84
In September of 2012, it was decided the site would house recreation programs.
In February of 2013, School Board Member Bob Peruzzotti suggested the school district turn Fitch Middle School over to the town to save $130,000 in maintenance costs a reverse of the original plan to hold onto Fitch Middle to have swing space during future school construction.
