[ARCHIVED] Sept. 12 Public Forum on Town Hall Visioning Study

News Logo

The Board of Selectmen is seeking comments on the “Wellesley Town Hall Visioning and Space Utilization Study” that looks at the feasibility of several options to restore and/or renovate the interior of Town Hall, one of the most significant historic buildings in Wellesley. On Wednesday, Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. in the Great Hall at Town Hall, residents will have the opportunity to review the study and give feedback. The development options reflect the goal of preserving the existing structure while improving the level of service delivered to the community.

Key parts of this study include addressing critical space and accessibility limitations and reviving one of the town’s most recognizable structures so it may continue its historic role as the hub of town government and civic affairs in Wellesley for the past 132 years. Built on land donated by town founder Horatio Hollis Hunnewell and completed in 1886, Wellesley Town Hall is on the National Register of Historic Buildings.

The proposed study includes multiple layouts that have been developed with a focus on improving town government efficiency, protecting existing open space, minimally impacting parking, managing construction costs and respecting the character of the building and surrounding landscape.

This event is an important step in moving the project forward; the information and opinions shared at this meeting will help to shape future decisions about the design and funding to further develop the ideas in this study.
