Buildings Committee

The Shutesbury Buildings Committee was charged, at its creation at Town Meeting in 1988, to "examine and over see renovations, new construction, and maintenance of Town owned properties."

These currently include Town Hall, the School, Library, Highway Department, Fire Station, Cemetery Hearse House, Old School House, and Old Town Hall.

Our meetings are typically the Third Wednesday of the Month, and are open to the Public. Check the bulletin board at Town Hall and the website for official postings.

 

Current Projects

The Shutesbury Buildings Committee (SBC) has been working on keeping the SES roof functional while obtaining state funding for replacing the entire roof.
The SBC continues to make small improvements and repairs to Town Hall.
The SBC has contracted to install a small heat pump in the Old Town Hall vault to improve the climate needed for record storage.
The SBC has applied to the Community Preservation Committee, with the Historical Commission,  to obtain funds for an engineering study and structural work in the Old Town Hall. The SBC hopes that this will be a first step towards historically sensitive rehabilitation of that building for public use.
