Preparing Belmont Mill for town office location could cost more than $1m
Beaudin informed selectmen last week that engineers have estimated it will take $1.4 million to repair the mill building. Many repairs are needed on the fourth floor, she said, and the building needs heating, air conditioning and other repairs.
The mill was renovated in the 1990s using a government grant that doesn’t expire for another five years, Beaudin said. To make other use of the building before then “would require some work with the government, even if it could be done,” she said.
“We have no space,” Beaudin said.
According to the town’s heritage commission, the mill, formerly the center of the busy town, was mostly abandoned by the 1970s, and in 1992, it was damaged by a fire. In 1995, the mill was on the verge of demolition when citizens fought to explore re-use options.
