Welcome to the East Longmeadow High School Building Project!

HS Tax Impact


At the October 25, 2023, Board of Directors Meeting, the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) not only approved the Scope & Budget Agreement for the Town, clearing the way for the Town vote on November 7th, but also increased their Project Funding Limits Policy, increasing the MSBA Grant of the East Longmeadow High School (ELHS) Project by $19 million.  The previous $393/SF building cap was increased to $550/SF and the previous $39/SF sitework cap was increased to $55/SF, thereby increasing our MSBA grant from $63M to $82M.

With the $19 million savings to East Longmeadow taxpayers, if the proposed Project is accepted at the November 7th debt exclusion vote, the tax impact will be reduced from the previously reported ~$990-~$1,040 per year, *based on the average single-family home (assessed value) of $339,811, to ~$812-$867 per year, *based on the average single-family home (assessed value). Or put another way, the estimated tax rate impact per $1,000 of assessed value will be reduced from the previously reported  ~$2.90-$3.06 per year, to ~$2.39-$2.56 per year*.
