The School Committee and the Planning Board following two conferences on the matter of location of possible school sites, visited the are in the vicinity of the corner of Dean and Neponset streets Tuesday evening.

At the present time, there are several sites available for the location of possible school buildings. Both groups are much concerned about the rapid development of housing facilities In the whole area between Route 1 and the Neponset Meadows.

The fact that it is proposed that Route 1 will be a six-lane highway has made everyone aware not only of the danger of crossing the artery but also it would appear that all pupils living in the area will have to be transported to school in buses unless some provision is made for school and school playground facilities accessible to all residents in the area.

At the present rate of development, it seems that the growth of this section is so rapid that action must be taken by the town to protect itself in a situation wherein land for a school site if later needed, it will be available.
