Miller-Driscoll Renovation Means Playground Repurposing and Small Steps

Lawsuit or not, the Miller-Driscoll renovation is forging ahead with next steps, small as they are. Already set up are two construction trailers which will serve as on-site offices for Turner Construction. According to Karen Birck, the co-chair of the M-D Building Committee, installation of the portable classrooms is still planned for early August; a permit for their footings has been issued and work on that will begin this week.

To make room for the portable classrooms, one of the playgrounds on the south end of the building has been dismantled. According to John Murphy, custodial and maintenance supervisor for the Wilton school district, the playground will be moved to Comstock Community Center and repurposed there, once construction at that town building is complete.
