November 15, 2013 – Bridgeport, CT – Plans for a new four-story Harding High School and state-of-the-art athletic fields on 17 acres at the General Electric Co.’s Boston Avenue property will go before the local zoning and wetlands boards this month.
“It’s an exciting project,” said Jorge Garcia, the school district’s deputy director of Public Facilities.
For years, officials have talked of replacing the 89-year-old high school building on Central Avenue. This year, GE donated a portion of its 77-acre property for that purpose. The school, parking lot, and athletic fields would take up about 8 percent of the property and would face Bond Street.
The $78 million school project includes plans for a rubberized track, baseball diamond and a synthetic turf field for football and soccer.
