The City of Cambridge invites you to a public meeting to discuss the Tobin Montessori and Vassal Lane Schools Project on Wednesday, February 12th, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Tobin School Auditorium.

This will be the fifth community meeting to discuss the project. Previous meetings included geotechnical and environmental discussions, brainstorming sessions, presentation of conceptual design options, programming information and community feedback response.

At this meeting, the City’s architect, Perkins-Eastman, and City officials will be:

Selecting a preferred option as the project moves into the “Schematic Design Phase”, allows the team to provide better-informed responses to questions about traffic, open space, cost, and handling of hazardous soils.  This does not indicate this is the final design. Additional community meetings will be held during this process so that we can continue to receive feedback and refine the design. We encourage the community to continue to provide feedback as we go through the Schematic Design Phase. Please submit comments to kriley@cambridgema.gov or citymanager@cambridgema.gov.

Comments and responses received so far in the process can be found on the project page under the “Documents” tab – www.cambridgema.gov/TobinSchool.

We encourage you to attend as we value feedback from residents and the school community.
