Development of a Comprehensive Facility Master Plan

If you were unable to join the Public Forum on Wednesday night, February 24 at 6:30 p.m. to exchange ideas and feedback on the "Facilities Assessment" being conducted by MGT of America, you may still voice your opinion.

The Town has selected MGT, a firm with extensive national experience in school and municipal facility assessments and planning, to evaluate the condition of all school buildings in addition to administrative offices for Town, School Department and Senior Center. The assessment will culminate in a 10-year master plan to help the Town better plan for future capital expenditures.

Three types of assessments will be conducted:
Building Condition - Evaluating roofing, windows, mechanical and electrical systems, etc.

Education Suitability - Evaluating how well the facility supports the educational program, such as if the building has the appropriate kinds of spaces and if the spaces are of appropriate size.

Technology Readiness - Evaluating how well the building’s infrastructure supports information technology.

In addition to the facilities assessment, the firm hired will perform a capacity & utilization analysis for the district’s schools and administrative offices noted above.
