Residents who favor building a new Billerica Memorial High School on Nov. 22 filed a statement of organization with the town clerk’s office to form a ballot question committee called “Building Billerica’s Future.” Jennifer Cedrone, vice president of the Hajjar Elementary School Parents Association, will serve as chairwoman of the group. Town Meeting last month approved the establishment of a 16-member high school building committee and the appropriation of $2 million for a feasibility study of the dilapidated high school, which opened in 1955. The town is seeking support for the project from the Massachusetts School Building Authority; the feasibility study is a necessary step to secure state funding.
