PLAINVILLE — A $25.26 million proposal to upgrade Wheeler Elementary School and repave the high school parking lot was approved by Plainville who voted for the referendum ballot Tuesday.

The final tally was:

  • Yes – 1016 81%
  • No – 236 19%

The proposal was backed by the school board and town council but the project required voter approval to begin. A “yes” vote allows the town to finance the projects and begin work.

The high school parking work will cost about $1.75 million, according to pre-referendum brochures available the last month in town hall, the library and other municipal spaces.
