WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Town Hall/School Administration Building Committee held its most recent meeting on Wednesday, August 11, 2021 in the Town Hall Auditorium.
Selectman Kevin Caira provided his colleagues with a summary of the meeting at the latest Board of Selectmen’s Meeting on Monday, August 16, 2021
“Members of the Town Hall/School Administration Building Committee met on August 11th with representatives from Johnson Roberts Architects to receive an update on their work to date,” said Caira. “The first presentation addressed space needs based upon in-person conversations with staff and site visits to the Town Hall and Roman House. A diagram was presented which identified estimated square footage for each space and includes offices, meeting areas, and storage spaces. Space is also identified for a studio for WCTV.”
According to Caira, architects are envisioning a two-story building totaling almost 40,000 square feet.
“The final portion of the meeting focused on a review of the four sites being considered,” continued Caira. “The Town Hall site, Swain parking lot site and property next to the Church of the Transfiguration could each handle a two-story building with the required parking. Due to the size of the building and the parking requirements, the Whitfield site would be much more challenging.”
Following the advice of the OPM Dan Pallotta, both the Town Hall/School Administration Building Committee and the Senior Center Building Committee will soon hold a joint meeting to establish a common set of criteria to use in evaluating the sites.
“The intention is to avoid both projects competing for the same site,” stressed Caira.
