The Brighton chapter of the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario hopes an appeal to the public school board will eventually save the current Brighton Public School.
The school is supposed to be demolished after a new Brighton School is built, and council decided last fall against further action to find alternative uses for the building.
Conservancy member Gordon Tobey told the Kawartha-Pine Ridge School Board Toronto architect Phillip Carter found the school to be structurally sound, and an important heritage feature.. The school board couldn’t commit to keeping the building, although there is still a possibility part of it could be used for the new school. Tobey hopes the municipality will step in and take some action to preserve the structure.
