Re: Council on Aging/Human Services Senior Center and/or Community Center Building Feasibility Study

At the November 2019 Special Town Meeting, the residents of Foxborough voted in favor, 188 to 10, to approve Article 4 "funding a Council on Aging/Human Services Senior Center and/or Community Center Building Feasibility Study".  After following the proper bid process, Bargmann Hendrie + Archetype Inc, was selected as the firm to conduct a new building Feasibility Study in the beginning of 2020. As with many aspects of our lives, Covid-19 placed a temporary pause on this study. 

Today, the Town of Foxborough and Human Services Director Marc Craig are pleased to share the first major step in the Building Feasibility Process. A community survey is the vital first step in this process and will provide the framework for what is desired from all community members in Foxborough as well as neighboring towns.

This community survey, https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FoxboroughSC , will be available until Friday, November 27th.  Paper surveys will be available to any resident at the Foxborough Senior Center during normal business hours. Please contact Marc Craig at [email protected] with any questions, comments or concerns regarding the survey or Feasibility Study process. 

The Feasibility Study will continue with many steps throughout the winter into the early spring including additional public engagement opportunities. Once the study is complete, a presentation to the Town and Board of Selectmen is planned for late spring. It is important to note that the Town has committed funding for the study only. Based on the results from the entirety of the Study, the Town will determine future steps and funding measures.

As with any survey or study, the more community participants and perspectives that are contributed, the greater success the Town will have in offering what the community desires for the future of Foxborough. All residents and regular participants in Town of Foxborough activities and programs are encouraged to participate in this survey and throughout this Feasibility Study process. Information and updates will be provide on the Council on Aging web page on the Town website at foxboroughma.gov.
