There’s been an interesting development in the ongoing saga over securing a new facility to house the police department. The Metrowest Daily News reports town officials last week toured the High Speed Video Inc. building at 150 Cordaville Road (map) which recently came on the market.

(Fire Chief) Mauro and (Interim Police Chief) Moran also voiced support for taking a longer look at the building to see if it would be feasible to place a police and fire complex there.

“It could be an opportunity to spend less money if the price is right,” Mauro said. “It’s an alternative to explore deeply.”

The building is about 41,500 square feet and sits on just over four acres. It’s listed for $3.4 million.

The town has been working on two plans to update the police station. One is a new construction plan that calls for demolishing the existing police station, and the other would renovate and add on to the existing building.

Asking price is just that; an asking price. Negotiate! The town should have bought that property back in the 1970’s when they were looking for property for the “new” fire station. The building that is there could be modified for both departments opening up space in the fire station for other departments.

It sure does seem like a nice, central location on route 85 with excellent access.

I agree completely with John’s comments. BUT, before we buy any more buildings, perhaps the selectmen should decide what to do with the underused Fayville Hall, and the underused former South Union School building.

John’s post makes perfect sense. I hope he will consider running for selectmen next year! He’ll get my vote.

South Union….sell it. Fire HQ…move to Cordaville Road, move out of Cordaville Hall and sell that waste of money. Then the old “public safety complex” on Main Street could house all of those offices in Cordaville Hall

This would be my thoughts: Sell the Facilities Building @ 2 Harrington Ct. the former Fire Station 2 and move the Facilities Department to the current Police Station. Sell Fayville Hall on Central St. and move those folks to the current Police Station. Sell Cordaville Hall the current Senior Center and move them to the current Fire Station. While we are selling all of these buildings, lets sell South Union or lease that building. After I do some quick math we should bring in around 2.5 – 3 million. Buy 150 Cordaville Rd. for 2.5 – 3 Million and move the Police and Fire to that building. Put some money to make it feasible for those departments. Now think about the savings! Someone make it happen please!!

I say any move toward a new Public safety building is a positive one. Centralize it so the South end is safer.
Vote for John next Selectman.

If done properly, the Selectmen would be forced to unload certain properties, such as the current fire station and South Union to recoup some of the losses. In the end, Cordaville Road woule make much more sense as a combined Public Safety facility, and with Station 2 now defunct, make things more centralized within the road system and population of the town.
