Residents vote against referendum to sell administrative building to company that will build senior housing
A former Hauppauge elementary school will not go up for sale.
The Whiporwil School was shut down decades ago, but the Hauppauge School District still uses it.
On Thursday night, residents voted against selling the property to a developer who planned to turn it into a 55-and-older community.
The vote was overwhelming against selling the building – 1,293 voted no, to the 294 who voted yes.
