Proposed Highway Garage Reconstruction

ColrainGarageDesignInProgress

Last year the Town was fortunate to receive a federal grant award of $1,000,000 to fund a much needed reconstruction of the highway garage. Since then the Selectmen have been working with the engineering firm of Weston and Sampson to design and cost estimate the potential project.

Preliminary cost estimates have revealed a likely project cost exceeding the available grant funding. Currently the Selectman are contemplating various scenarios to fill the potential funding gap, while at the same time continuing to refine the design and cost estimates. The Selectmen contemplate bringing a final proposal to the Town for approval sometime in the next few months. In the meantime; here is a rendering of the project as it stands today. Please stop at the Town Office or attend a Selectmen meeting to ask questions or further discuss this important potential project
