Architect on board for initial police station plans in Plaistow
The town recently hired Dore & Whittier Architects of Newburyport, Mass., to complete a feasibility study for a new police station and refurbished public safety complex.
Dore & Whittier is being asked to conduct a feasibility study, prepare a preliminary design schematic and cost estimates for a stand-alone police station to be located behind the current facility on the same lot on Elm Street.
Last year, selectmen agreed to spend $25,000 raised through public safety impact fees on the preliminary engineering and architectural study for the new police station.
The survey will help the architectural firm outline the space and program needs for the police and fire departments.
Fire Chief and building committee member John McArdle said the town has been looking at the possibility of building a new police station and an updated public safety facility for the better part of a decade.
