Voters overwhelmingly defeated the proposed school construction plan, with 1,437 in favor and 4,184 against. The Thames Street reconstruction plan was approved, by a vote of 3,334 to 2,306.

Voters cast ballots today on the proposed $133 million school construction plan called "Phase II" and on the $6.4 million plan to rebuild Thames Street.

The school construction project relied on state subsidies and an anticipated 66 percent reimbursement rate, which would have reduced the total cost of the project to $65.8 million.
