From Foster's Daily Democrat: Somersworth, N.H., has selected an architectural firm to design the city's new elementary school. Team Design/Harriman was picked out of nine applicants. The new school will replace Hilltop Elementary, which had its top two floors closed because of code violations. It will be built with enough space for up to 630 K-5 students and 22 classrooms. Construction is expected to begin next April and be completed by August 2011.
