UPDATE ON HIGH MEADOWS

3.16.2020

Good Afternoon,
 
While we are all hunkered down here are some updates. MCA Engineering is working on their reports for the engineering portion of the project. We have asked for a completion date and any updates they give us will be shared with you. The cost of all of the engineering work for MCA was $49,800.
 
Building Consultant Hired! We are pleased to tell you that BL Companies was hired (through an RFP process). BL will provide complete building evaluation services, including structural, electrical, plumbing, etc.. BL will do a Phase I environmental report as well as summarize all of the work done on asbestos etc through the years by the State of CT. BL's fee will be $40,500.
 
This brings the total funds committed to date to approximately $90,000. Our original estimate for the out of pocket expense was between $100k-$105k. We still have to do the market and traffic study. We expect to be close to the estimated cost.
Once we have the results for the site and building and once the Mayor submits the budget AND once we get through the COVID Crisis, we will form a citizen group to go forward. As you probably know we had scheduled real estate tour of the Town for developers and real estate brokers which would have included High Meadows. But, we had to cancel that event until later in the spring.
 
We will also be sending this information out through our email system on Constant contact. If you are not on our list send me your email address at dkroop@hamden.com.
