Vote yes on Article #2 Multi-Generational
Community Center

How will this impact my taxes? The cost of the building will have a tax impact of $.31/thousand.  Example: The median residential land and building value in Wakefield is $242,250.  Resulting in an impact of $77.52/per year.

Will this require more staff? If any additional staff is needed we plan to pay for them with self-sustaining programs.

Will it cost more to operate and maintain this facility than the current building? A bigger building may cost more to operate but it's anticipated that these costs will be offset with revenue from various programs. ICF construction and LED lighting utilities are extremely efficient and our hope is to keep utility costs low. 

Are you looking into using green energy for utilities? Yes. We will be using motion activated LED lighting, solar options, and are researching ICF construction.

When did this project begin?

In 2010 the master plan survey identified the need
In 2018 we hired UNH (at no cost to the tax payers) to determine if there was a need in Wakefield for this building.  
The team from UNH presented their findings to the selectmen in August of 2019. You can view that video here. https://vimeo.com/355239610 
After approval from the selectmen to continue on with our project we started working with Harriman architect firm that conducted a feasibility study for us. This was again at a zero cost to the tax payers. 
In January of 2022 the selectmen approved Warrant article 2 to be passed through to the budget committee. The budget committee approved warrant article 2 on a vote of 8-4 in favor. 

Your vote is important! We need your support at the deliberative session on February 5th @ 9am. Please make sure you are registered to vote prior to the meeting.
