- Unofficial results show overwhelming rejection of $445 million spending for new Whittier Tech high school
- Newburyport and Amesbury residents voted no, with Haverhill being the only community in favor
- Area residents’ rejection poses significant setback for Whittier Tech, requiring them to reassess plans for a new high school
In a stunning turn of events, it appears that the Whittier Tech Project is likely to be defeated as area residents have overwhelmingly rejected the $445 million proposal. The project, which aimed to revamp and modernize the Whittier Regional Vocational Technical High School, has faced intense scrutiny and criticism from local communities.
Following months of heated debate and public hearings, it seems that the majority of residents are not in favor of the costly project. With a final vote looming, it is becoming increasingly clear that the proposal does not have the support it needs to move forward.
The rejection of the Whittier Tech Project comes as a major setback for proponents who argued that the upgrades were crucial for the school’s future and would benefit both students and the surrounding communities. However, opponents have consistently raised concerns about the high price tag and the impact it would have on taxpayers.
In the wake of the overwhelming rejection, school officials and project supporters are left reeling, with many expressing disappointment and frustration. It remains to be seen what the next steps will be for the Whittier Tech Project, but it is clear that significant challenges lie ahead.
The fate of the project will ultimately be decided in the upcoming vote, but it is apparent that the road ahead will be a difficult one for the Whittier Tech Project and its proponents.
