Public Works Expansion – Current Status of Project
The City is proceeding toward receiving bids from contractors in early 2019 for the construction of a Public Work Maintenance Building and Cold Storage Building along with the extension east of Veterans Memorial Boulevard from Nightingale Street to Tower Drive. These new facilities will provide a safe work environment for the maintenance of the City’s equipment and to facilitate the movement a of a significant amount of valuable equipment indoors. This project has a $9.8 million budget.
This expansion project has had significant discussion dating back to the early 2000’s and was the driver of the City acquiring properties along Crosstown Boulevard between Hanson Boulevard and Nightingale Street by the City to provide the necessary space for the for the City of Andover to provide municipal services for the ultimate build out of the community.
An expansion has been identified in the Capital Improvement Plans (CIP) starting with the 2007-2011 CIP to the current 2018-2022 CIP, each CIP is adopted after a public hearing.
CIP Page excerpts are available for viewing below.
November 7, 2018 is a City Council meeting where the City Council will determine the financing tool for this construction project.
