This was decided unanimously on Wednesday night by the town council of Newtown, Connecticut, and not more comments were about it. The community try to forget one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history. and planned to keep the land as open space at least for a long time. Everything inside, including rugs and lighting fixtures, have been previously removed and incinerated so nothing could become memorabilia. “We sought considerable input from the (victims’) families, and the overwhelming sentiment was to tear down the house and leave it as open space. Under my tenure, I can’t see doing anything else with that property,” Patricia Llodra, Newtown’s highest elected official, told the council before the vote. The town demolished Sandy Hook Elementary School last year and is building a new school on the site.
