    Public meetings over town municipal plans

    Residents are being asked to weigh in on future municipal building plans. The Town Building Needs Study Committee met last week with Reinhardt Associates, the Agawam-based architectural and engineering firm hired by the town last year to make proposals that address the space needs of municipal departments, and is eager to get citizen input. “Reinhardt has met with the various town departments to assess their space needs and how they can be met by a town building complex,” said Barry DeCristofano, chairman of the committee. “We are still looking at preliminary concepts and will review things over the next few weeks. We want to keep it open for residents to weigh in.” He said he expects public meetings over the next six weeks or so. Ideally, funding for engineering and design work will be brought to Town Meeting next year and an appropriation for building the facilities will be sought the following year, DeCristofano said.
