Police Station Project Goals & Objectives

The Building Committee has formed at the request of the Board of Selectmen to recommend a police station site and design that will meet the needs of the community, with an eye toward modest growth, for the next generation.

To this end, the Building Committee will:

  • Review past deliberations and recommendations by the ad hoc committee, Town Hall employees and Board of Selectmen before the Building Committee was formed;
  • Gather new information that may inform a new recommendation;
  • Follow a process that is open and transparent to the public;
  • Provide periodic updates in public forums, such as joint meetings with the Board of Selectmen, public access TV programming and/or press releases;
