Since the Annual Town Meeting approved the request to create detailed designs and construction bid documents, the Building Committee, Owner's Project Manager, and Architect have been very busy. On September 13, 2022 a progress report was provided with detailed designs nearing completion. A slide presentation is available below and a recording of the meeting will be posted on Pepperell COmmunity Media's video on demand service in the near future.
In addition to the information available on this page, three public presentations have been held on February 10, 2022, April 6, 2022 and April 20, 2022. All were recorded and are available on the Pepperell Community Media video on demand site. Here is a link to the April 20th presentation: April 20, 2022 Project Update

The Town is reviewing the conditions of all its buildings and in particular the police station, both fire stations, the DPW Highway facility, the Peter Fitzpatrick School, and Town Hall. There is extensive deferred maintenance in each location and determining whether to repair, renovate, or replace these properties will require effort and advice from across the community.
This committee will be made up of citizens and staff members and will have calendar year, appointments.

Owner's Project Manager Selection
The Owner's Project Manager (OPM) is critical to a successful construction project. Required under state law for construction projects exceeding $1.5 Million dollars, the OPM provides critical services to support the Town in decision making regarding defining business requirements, site selection, designer selection, contracting, verifying credentials of contractors, etc. Perhaps most importantly, the OPM provides services the town will have difficulty conducting on its own and can therefore keep a project moving efficiently and effectively - saving the community real money in projects of this scale.
