Harwich, MA, Will Soon Get New Municipal Safety Facility

September 28, 2010

A long-awaited 20,200-square-foot municipal safety facility, with a price tag of $8.8 million, will soon rise on Sisson Road in Harwich, MA. Members of the Building Committee for the public safety facility, along with town officials participating in the groundbreaking, are (l to r): Fire Chief Flynn, Deputy Chief Norm Clarke, Franco Previd, John Brooks, State Representative Sara Peake, Debbie DeCosta, Police Chief Bill Mason, Dick Hoyer, Police Chaplain Jim David, Ray Jefferson, Selectman Dave Marsland, Larry Cole, Selectman Angelo Lamantia, and Selectman Ed McMannus. Bufftree Building Company has broken ground for the building that will function as a central command center for the town’s police and fire departments. Currently, the police department operates out of a 50-year-old structure adjacent to the existing fire station that will also undergo renovations. The design calls for conventional steel framing with a fiber cement siding and brick veneer, a traditional gable roof, fiberglass windows, and aluminum entrance doors. The project is expected to take 16 months to complete.
