At the March 25, 2017 Town Meeting, under Article #35, the Board of Selectmen (BOS) asked the voters to appropriate $150,000 for the purpose of funding a feasibility study and preliminary design development plans for a community center to be located within the Hartwell Complex of the Ballfield Road campus. The proposal was approved by a substantial margin, and received the necessary vote at the ballot so that the funds would be provided through a one-time exclusion from Proposition 2 ½.
To carry out the study, the BOS has convened the Community Center Planning & Preliminary Design Committee (CCPPDC). The purpose of the CCPPDC, which will work under the guidance of the Board of Selectmen and in collaboration with the School Building Committee, is to advance the planning of a Community Center to the next stage. This will include further definition of the program, the development of a range of site plans, preliminary design development, and more refined cost estimates.
In the process, the CCPPDC will be building on the work of the 2012, 2015 and 2016 planning committees whose work is summarized in the links to the right. It will also collaborate with the School Building Committee to ensure the appropriate alignment of decision points and milestones, so that any proposals are considered within the context of a Lincoln School project and the Ballfield Road campus.
