The Town of Easton is undertaking a crucial public safety & public works facilities replacement project to enhance essential services for our community. The project involves constructing a new combined DPW facility, police and fire headquarters, and fire substation, consolidating multiple outdated buildings. With facilities ranging from 50-70+ years old, these structures no longer meet various health, safety, and environmental codes, and are beyond their useful lives. The estimated cost for this comprehensive project is $150 million, covering the buildings, sitework, traffic signaling, furniture, equipment, and technology. By consolidating the existing 14 buildings into three, the new facilities provide ample space for equipment storage and personnel to work safely, ultimately enabling us to deliver the best possible service to the Easton community.
On September 11, 2023, the project team presented a comprehensive project update spanning the entire project from its inception through feasibility, schematic design and financial impact analysis to the Select Board and community. If you are learning about the project for the first time and are looking for a single document to cover it all, this is a great resource. Please click here to view that full presentation.
Voters will decide whether the project advances to construction or not at the October 23 Special Town Meeting (7:00 PM) and November 4 Debt Exclusion Election (10AM-4PM). Both votes will be at the Oliver Ames High School.
