Formation of the Building Committee
On April 10, 2008 the Selectboard discussed forming a committee to examine options for a town office but no action was taken. The Selectboard posted a notice on August 26, 2009 seeking property suitable for a town office. The same notice was also printed several times in the Magnet. Little to no response was received. Late in 2009, several properties came on the market and the Selectboard began to evaluate them as possible sites for a town office or other municipal facility.  On October 22, 2009 the Selectboard again discussed forming a committee and a notice seeking interested members was posted shortly thereafter. The Building Committee was officially formed by the Selectboard on January 28, 2010.

Building Committee Creed
We will proceed slowly and deliberately, yet with all due haste. We will follow a logical process of identifying the needs and desires of the community and develop a plan that addresses those. We will keep very clear, detailed records of our decisions. We will be transparent and inclusive. We will give town residents multiple opportunities to know what is happening, when it is happening, how it is happening, and to be a part of the process if they so desire. We will think carefully about what this building will be used for both now and in the future, planning ahead rather than focusing solely on solving today’s problem. We will consider costs, where funding will come from and how we can get the maximum result while minimizing the amount of town tax dollars needed. We will give the residents and taxpayers of Middletown Springs a building which they will be proud of, which will serve the needs of the community for many years and which will be an asset to the village center.

Meetings
Meetings are held on the first Wednesday and third Thursday of each month at 7pm in the Town Office and are open to the public.  Agenda for the next scheduled meeting.

MIDDLETOWN MEETING – New Town Office from David Munyak on Vimeo.

The Middletown Springs Building Committee’s first public informational meeting was held on February 2, 2013 at the Elementary School.  The meeting was was filmed and edited by our local community access television station, PEG TV for their local news program Access.  This video includes a short interview with Committee Chairman David Munyak about the need for a new town office and the steps being taken toward that goal. It then shows the presentation given to the audience prior to them circulating among the nine information stations that were set up and enjoying the many free soups that were available.  Thank you to our dedicated volunteers and to PEG TV for making this video possible.  Please visit them at pegtv.com.
