Town Building Committee

The Shutesbury Town Buildings Committee was created by the 1988 Annual Town Meeting to "examine and oversee renovations, new construction, and maintenance of Town-owned properties."

Those properties currently include Town Hall, the Shutesbury Elementary School, the M.N.Spear 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 Town meeting calendar for official postings.

 

Current Projects

  • The Shutesbury Town Buildings Committee (STBC) has been working on keeping the SES roof functional while obtaining state funding for replacing the entire roof.
  • The STBC continues to make small improvements and repairs to Town Hall.
  • The STBC has contracted to install a small heat pump in the Old Town Hall vault to improve the climate needed for record storage.
  • The STBC 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 STBC hopes that this will be a first step towards historically sensitive rehabilitation of that building for public use.
