FRAMINGHAM – The Yes for Fuller! campaign is holding a launch event at the Framingham Elks on Wednesday, October 24 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
The Yes For Fuller! campaign is run by Framingham community members to encourage the approval of funding to allow for the construction of a new Fuller Middle School.
Funding for the new school requires a Proposition 2 1/2 debt exclusion override vote by the majority of Framingham voters in a special election scheduled on Tuesday, December 11.
Donations also can be made to the Yes For Fuller! campaign.
Yard signs that says Yes For Fuller! will be available soon.
In August, the Framingham School Building Committee unanimously approved new middle school project budget at $98.3 million. The State is anticipated to give the community a $39.5 million grant towards the cost of the project. Voters would approve the cost via a debt exclusion override vote.
In 2013, the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) agreed Fuller was at the end of its useful life and invited Framingham into their selective process to access funding. The MSBA is the state agency charged with overseeing and supporting school improvement projects with state grants and has rigorous standards for communities to balance affordability with each community’s infrastructure needs.
