The Permanent Building Committee, Facilities Department, and the Friends of the Josiah Smith Tavern have been working with the firm of Baker Wohl Architects to develop the design and engineering plans for the adaptive reuse of the historically-protected Josiah Smith Tavern building. Bringing this historic building back to public use is not a simple project and it has many intricacies in order to bring the entire building up to code for public use.
After extensive architectural and engineering review and design, the construction fund request will be coming to the December 3, 2019 Special Town Meeting.
Bids were reviewed by the Permanent Building Committee at its meeting on November 19th and results will be posted prior to Special Town Meeting.
The project is with the Permanent Building Committee. Residents can subscribe to receive notification of when meeting agendas and minutes are posted if they would like to follow the progress of this project.
