Purpose of the study

With the closure of the Elm Street Middle School on the horizon, the City of Nashua has engaged planning consultant, Marvel, to conduct a feasibility study which will analyze the highest and best future use of this public land. The nearly 9-acre school site, which sits just one block away from the Downtown Main Street corridor, and historically served as the city’s “South Commons”, is of strategic importance for the City of Nashua. The study will include evaluating the historic school building for potential adaptive re-use, exploring the potential preservation of the Keefe Auditorium, and establishing parameters for site-wide redevelopment including a range of new uses. This survey and your responses will help to inform the strategies and concepts developed in the next phase of the planning study.
