WEST HARTFORD — Last week, a 15-year-old dream came true for the Hebrew High School of New England. Credit the last four years of nonstop planning and due diligence, or the two-week-long “Tehillim Campaign” at the school, or the team of design professionals, attorney, and building committee members who presented the school’s latest application to the West Hartford Town Planning and Zoning Commission.
After the five-hour hearing, P&Z issued a special-use permit for construction of a new school.
Since its founding in 1996, HHNE has been housed in the lower level of Congregation Agudas Achim on North Main Street. Starting in Fall 2010, the school will open its new facility on an 11-acre site across from the Zachs Campus on Bloomfield Avenue.
