School Committee and Board of Selectmen Seek Candidates for Two At-Large Members of Campus Master Plan Committee
In response to community interest in locating a community center on the Lincoln School (Ballfield Road) campus, the Board of Selectmen and the School Committee are jointly creating the Campus Master Plan Committee (CMPC). The purpose of the CMPC will be to consider infrastructure and safety issues related to the possible co-location of Council on Aging, Parks and Recreation, and School functions on Ballfield Road. Its charge will be to examine the implications on roadways, traffic, parking, public safety and accessibility, and recreational facilities, and to understand site issues such as wetlands, conservation land, septic fields, and geotechnical conditions.
The CMPC will be responsible for hiring, subject to approval by the Selectmen and the School Committee, a firm with the skills needed to do the work. At the 2015 Town Meeting, Article 33 authorized $75,000 for this purpose. The CMPC will determine its own meeting schedule, but it is expected that it will meet frequently between June and December, with the delivery of a final report by the end of the year. The committee will gather input from the public and relevant boards, with the expectation that an interim report and public feedback will be one of the items for discussion at the fall State of the Town meeting.
Interested candidates should have experience and skills that will further the work of the committee. The at-large members will join representatives from relevant Town boards. Letters of interest should be submitted to both the Board of Selectmen [firstname.lastname@example.org] and the School Committee [email@example.com] by Friday, May 15, 2015. The Selectmen and School Committee will hold a joint meeting to finalize the CMPC’s charge and to appoint the at-large members on Monday, May 18, 2015 at 7:30pm in the Donaldson Room, Town Offices.
