When the Grade 5 through 12 school building in Westport, Mass., opens in 2021, it will not be able to incorporate the adjacent campgrounds, which will soon be put on the market, according to southcoasttoday.com.

Campground Evaluation Committee and School Committee member Nancy Stanton-Cross said the general consensus is that the town or school district should still buy the property and use it at a later time.

Stanton-Cross said this week that the CEC toured the property last Friday (Oct. 19) and then voted to urge selectmen to get the approximately 33-acre property appraised.

“The general consensus I am getting right now is this is something for us to be forward-thinking about. We need to think about where our district is going to be five years, 10 years and 15 years from now,” Stanton-Cross said.

In an email this week, Stanton-Cross noted the property appraisal will include the two houses on the front portion of the property, which can be included if the town chooses to purchase the property.
