BROOKLINE—The debate over how Brookline should address surging public school enrollment received a key vote Monday as a committee recommended that the high school and several kindergarten-through-eighth-grade schools be expanded.
The Committee on Brookline School Population and Capital Expenditures, referred to as B-SPACE, voted, 8 to 0, to recommend to the School Committee that existing schools be expanded.
Though the cost of the projects has not been determined, early estimates by town officials put the range at $150 million to $300 million, and the town is establishing a committee to study a Proposition 2½ override.
“This is a momentous occasion,” committee member Ken Goldstein said of the vote Monday night. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
