Facility Master Plan

The Town of Wilmington is preparing a Facility Master Plan to establish a long term strategy for the allocation of its municipal uses among buildings and sites.  This planning process will establish a sequence of short-term, mid-term and long-term recommendations that will guide the Town's decisions about the best approach to its capital investments and operations.  The Facility Master Plan will focus on facilities that may require significant repairs, additions, replacement or re-organization to ensure that the facilities and the services that they support match the goals of the community cost-effectively.  The preparation of the Facility Master Plan began in December of 2015 and is expected to take about one year to complete.

The Town is being assisted by a professional team led by The Cecil Group/Harriman composed of facility planners, architects, engineers and cost estimators.

The Facility Master Plan Committee hosted a public meeting to present on the status of the plan development and gather input on the options being considered for various town and school facilities.  The meeting was held on Wednesday, June 29th at 6:30 PM in the Middle School Auditorium.  The presentation outlined suggested scenarios, which include the possibility of closing, rehabbing, consolidating, or redeveloping a number of municipal and school facilities including the Town Hall, Roman House, and Senior Center.  The scenarios were created from a comprehensive assessment of the Town’s sites and structures, and with input from a public survey conducted earlier this year.  The presentation can be found here.  The Committee is seeking additional input from the community.  Please click this link to share your opinion on the scenarios outlined in the presentation.

There were 461 responses received from the public survey.  The results can be found here.

The Facility Master Plan Committee meets the third Thursday of every month at 7:00pm at Town Hall.  Check the Town Calendar for up to date meeting information.
