I attended the Building Committee meeting this morning – they started at 6:30 AM, and I got there about 15 minutes in. They heard an update on the DPW garage planning progress from Roland Lavallee of HNTB and started the master planning process for the Dale Street municipal campus with the recently selected architect, HKT Architects, Inc.
Still lots of planning needed to get the DPW garage ready for presentation to the residents at the annual town meeting (ATM) for a vote. The hope is to also have an annual town meeting (ATM) vote to allocate planning monies to pursue a new public safety building, which is a major part of the master planning. The committee at 8:30 went off to hold a visioning session with the chiefs of the MPD and the MFD, and I went to work.
