A little more Town Hall

As we look ahead to the future of the Town's civic presence, specifically of our Town Hall, the Town Council is committed to getting the details right. We understand the importance of this project and the impact it will have on our community for years to come. That's why we have been working closely with local subject matter experts to ensure that we have a complete plan to present to residents.

 

After a thorough review process, we conducted initial interviews with four architectural firms and have selected the top two proposals. This decision was made with careful consideration, as we want to ensure that we choose the best partner to help us engage the community for feedback and to provide a very detailed architectural plan complete with thorough programming requirements and recommended MEP systems. Its important that we choose a firm that we can all trust.

 

To further this goal, we have authorized the Town Manager to enter financial negotiations with these top two firms. This will allow us to obtain fully scoped pricing, ensuring that we have all the information we need to make an informed decision about which architectural firm will guide to complete a renovation plan.

 

As you can understand the options are either new or renovated buildings, with a whole lot of complexities along the way. Our intention is to present a fully scoped option to the voters in November. However, this timeline is contingent on our ability to provide the community with an accurate renovation plan. Rest assured, we are working diligently to keep the project on track and will keep you updated every step of the way. We’ve dedicated a page on the website so residents can access important information: https://southberwickmaine.org/government/town_council/town_hall_project_information.php
