       It doesn’t say that’s why they got the job.  Perhaps they were the low bidder, and the writer simply thought the bit about the company’s ownership was an interesting aside.

    I hope that they can make a year round flea market with the property and a gym for us seniors. I  had heard that this was being discussed and I for one, would really like it to be. As a senior who does not swim I would like to do something local besides drinking coffee at Dysarts or the coffee cafe oh, I forgot, eating too. Seniors need a place to go and a flea market like they have in Florida with new stuff,  would produce revenue for the town.  Here’s to hope.

      If it wasn’t good enough for students why is it good enough for anything else.  This just proves what a farce spending $60,000,000 on that new school really is.  I wouldn’t care if only Hampden residents had to pay for it but the rest of us got suckered too.

    Sure glad I am not a Hampden tax payer. Heat , Maintenance, Utilities, not to mentionall the enviromental issues that are going to be exposed and will need to be taken care of. . Thia is the reason so many old schools are sitting vacant all over the state.

    Now the town will have to maintain this building, when high ongoing maintenance costs were a major reason given by the school administration to justify needing a new building. Plus, WHY are the Hampden taxpayers now buying a property they already paid for once before?
