With the final selection of the Baldwin School site as the location of Brookline's 9th elementary school, the project is now in the Feasibility Study phase. During this phase, Jonathan Levi Architects (JLA) will be working with the 9th School Building Committee, the School Committee as the user agency, the Building Department, and numerous town commissions and departments including Parks and Open Space, the Building Commission, the Recreation Department, and the Transportation Board to more deeply analyze the site specific considerations of this site. During the Feasibility Study phase JLA will create design options for the size, configuration and location of the school on the Baldwin site. The outcome of this phase will be the Building Committee's selection of a preferred design concept that will then move the project forward into the Schematic Design phase.


The members of the 9th School Building Committee represent a broad range of constituencies and experiences, including parents, community members who live near the Baldwin School site, elected officials, and Town and School Department Staff. The first meeting of this committee will be on Monday, November 30 at 8:00 a.m. in Room 103 of Town Hall. At this  initial meeting the Building Committee will create a schedule of their upcoming meetings. All meetings of the Building Committee are open to the public.


The members of the 9th Elementary School Building Committee are: 

  • David Pollak, Co-Chair – School Committee 
  • Nancy Daly, Co-Chair – Board of Selectmen
  • Janet Fierman, Co-Chair – Building Commission
  • Melvin Kleckner - Town Administrator
