The Plymouth Board of Selectmen, joined by the School, Finance, and Building Committees –as well as the Planning Board and the Redevelopment Authority met Tuesday night to discuss the concept of moving town hall down town to the 1820 Courthouse.

Although it was stated over and over again that devil is in the details of such a move, town officials decided to set those details aside for now.

Town Manager Melissa Arrighi:

“What happened this evening is you saw overwhelming support from everybody in that room, with some hesitation about what the cost could be and the space needs, but overwhelming support to explore this concept.”

The Select Board moved quickly to set the project in motion, according to Arrighi:

“In a surprising turn of events the Board of Selectmen not only rescinded their former article to go out to bid for a private developer to work on the 1820 courthouse corridor concept, but they also approved up to $75,000  to be spent on this feasibility study.”

The article calling for funding for the feasibility study will go to spring town meeting.
