Have the plans been independently vetted by anyone not directly connected to the projects?
  1. We have presented these plans/estimates before both the Advisory Committee Public Safety subcommittee as well as the Capital subcommittee. In addition, we have gone before the Select Board and full Advisory Committee twice and received unanimous support each time. We also have had 2 meetings with the Buildings Commission over the course of these deliberations.
  2. No further “independent” vetting has been undertaken because there are no detailed architectural drawings yet to review. Funding for that next stage is imbedded in the project cost.
