Proposed New Our Island Home
Our Island Home – Feasibility Study
OIH is conducting a new architectural/engineering feasibility study to explore what steps would be required to make an informed decision on how to best proceed if OIH were to replace the current facility on its existing site and remain at 9 East Creek Road. As such, the study does not represent a commitment to fund, design and build a new facility; rather, it will explore the issues involved in undertaking such a challenge.
A charrette with key stakeholders and LWDA was held on May 6, 2019. The goal was to review options for the current site, discuss criteria, and determine pros and cons of drafted scenarios and schemes. This review provided LWDA with necessary data to develop a final recommendation on 'best options' for phased construction on East Creek Road with a Rough Order of Magnitude cost estimate. The Charrette was recorded and you may watch it in this page.
LWDA's recommendation is scheduled for review at the September 11th, 2019 Select Board meeting.
