Wilmington Elderly Services Director Terri Marciello Provides Update On New Senior Center Project (March 2023)

Below is an update from Wilmington Elderly Services Director Terri Marciello, published in the Senior Center’s latest Buzzell Buzz newsletter:

WILMINGTON, MA — Here’s what has been happening since our last update in the February Newsletter:

On January 25, 2023, the Senior Center Building Committee met with the OPM and the architect via Zoom. The Agenda included reviewing the general site design along with an outline of the steps that are planned for the next 2 months. This is referred to as the Design Development Phase of the project. There was also discussion on the entrance to the building and how to make it look more prominent. The architect presented some sketches of proposed changes. Following comments from the Committee, the architect will present a more detailed design for the entrance at the next meeting. The architect discussed the various approvals and permits that will be required for the project. The site design will need Planning Board approval. There will also be meetings with various town departments, including Fire Department, DPW and the town’s Community Development Committee to discuss the project and receive their input. A permit from Mass. DOT will also be required for the driveway entrance from Main Street (Route 38). The architect is planning to submit an application with plans for Site Plan Approval to the Planning Board by March 9 to get on the agenda for the April 4 Planning Board meeting.

On Friday, February 3, 2023, the architect, Lee Morrissette, met with Terri Marciello to review room layouts and materials.

The next Senior Center Building Committee meeting is scheduled for March 8 at the Town Hall. The meeting will focus on the exterior design of the building including the entrance, patio, service locations and proposed building materials.

The project continues to move forward on schedule toward a Fall construction start. This is your Senior Center; we encourage you to continue to stay engaged.
