For immediate release:
The Northborough Board of Selectmen is seeking individuals interested in serving on the White Cliffs Committee for a period of up to two years with members serving until such time as they are replaced or the Committee is disbanded by vote of the Board of Selectmen.
The Committee will be charged with exploring the long-term viability of the property and be involved in all phases of the process including:
- hiring of consultants to establish base line conditions and recommend work to document and secure the property and provide ongoing management in the near term;
- working with town staff and consultants to assess the viability of use by the town or a third party and recommend the necessary steps needed for a project to move forward, such as a zoning change or remedial work that will prepare the building for redevelopment by the town or make it a more viable asset for a new owner or leasee;
- exploring viable reuses related to the town owning and operating the building, the town owning the building and leasing the building to a third-party on a short or long term basis, or the sale of the asset to a proven end user.
The committee will then present recommendations to the Board of Selectmen for consideration at the 2019 Annual Town Meeting.
There are up to four openings on the committee for community members at large. You must be a resident of Northborough and a registered voter to be considered.
If interested, please submit a brief letter of interest and a resume to the Board of Selectmen, 63 Main Street, Northborough, MA 01532. For more information you may contact Diane Wackell in the Selectmen’s Office at 508-393-5040.
