The planning commission may decide tonight whether to back the proposed sites for two new schools in Bristol.
Though some officials said this week that the decision would come next month, they may well be wrong.
It's up to planning commissioners whether to make a choice tonight or wait another month -- and they have typically decided on these types of questions in a single meeting.
Moreover, there may be a chance for public participation as well.
Again, planning commissioners have the right to listen to public comment on the issue. They apparently don't have to provide the forum, but they can, and they might.
Anyone who wishes to talk should keep in mind that they can only discuss the merits of the sites selected - the Scalia sand pit off Barlow Street and the former Crowley dealership off Pine Street - and not the merits of the kindergarten to eighth grade plan or other issues unrelated to the sites themselves.
