The Walley School on the Bristol Town Common

Since last fall, students from the Community Partnerships Center at Roger Williams University have solicited public input and worked with Town officials to create a plan for arts- and education-focused reuse of the currently vacant Walley School on High Street.

On Wednesday, April 11, members of the Bristol community are invited to a final workshop on the future of Walley School that will include the presentation of a draft plan for reuse. The meeting will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Reynolds School at 235 High Street.

The presentation will include details on proposed uses and programs along with design/space allocations, a business plan and cost estimates for rehabilitation. Attendees will have the opportunity to offer input on the draft plan.

Following the April 11 workshop, the CPC students will incorporate the community’s input as they work toward finalizing the Walley School plan for presentation to the project steering committee, and ultimately, the Bristol Town Council later this spring.

Cake from the Cake Gallery will be served with coffee, tea and soft drinks. Attendees should R.S.V.P. to Sue Contente at (401) 254-3683 or scontente@rwu.edu.
