Recently, the Sharon selectmen approved with a vote of 3-0 to go ahead with a feasibility study for a new public safety building for both the police and fire department.
According to fire chief James Wright, architectural firm Kaestle Boos Associates of Foxboro was chosen out of a dozen applicants to assist with the study.
The firm will help the town look for suitable spaces to build a new public safety building in Sharon. Previously, the DPW, fire, and police departments have looked at locations but a new set of eyes was desired.
Kaestle Boos Associates will be paid $150,000 for their services, leaving about $50,000 left in the budget for the study.
Once a small group of sites are selected, Kaestle Boos will perform further study, create more architectural details, and layouts. A couple of more sites will be selected again for more significant testing.
Wright added that the needs of the police and fire departments will be assessed to see what can be done with the current buildings and the cost.
Once a site and plan is created, a proposal is expected to be submitted for a future town meeting.
