Town of Hanover, MA   Sylvester School Redevelopment Committee What would you like to see for the future use of the Sylvester School?

The Sylvester building has served Hanover for almost 90 years but it is no longer a suitable educational facility for many reasons. The purpose of the Sylvester School Redevelopment Committee is to study the need and feasibility of potential reuses of the Sylvester School, and recommend findings to the Board of Selectmen. The Committee will serve in an advisory capacity to the Board of Selectmen.

HOW SHOULD WE RE-PURPOSE THE SYLVESTER SCHOOL BUILDING FOR AN APPROPRIATE FUTURE USE?

The Sylvester School is located in the historic and civic center of town with playgrounds, fields, government buildings and schools nearby. Imagine old Sylvester School being your new loft apartment, your local farmer’s market, office space, senior housing or a community center.

Come to Hanover Town Hall on October 12th at 7 PM for Open Public Meeting to learn more about the Sylvester School Redevelopment project and share your ideas on the Sylvester School’s future use, respecting the immediate neighborhoods and their uses.

Think out of the box. But remember, this is the center of town with playgrounds, sports fields, and school children nearby. Also tight parking. We would love to hear your ideas!

Imagine this being the entrance to your new loft apartment, your local farmer's market, or a community center. This building is historical and here to stay...but what will it be used for next?

I would love to hear from friends your thoughts on how we should repurpose the Sylvester building for a use appropriate to this rare, central site and respectful of the immediate neighborhood and its several uses. While we all have big dreams (I know I do!), the project has to be viable and cannot be a burden to our town. What do you think we should do?
