The Building, Planning & Construction Committee evaluates the building needs of the Town, examines the physical condition of all Town-owned buildings, and determines the need for constructing new buildings, or renovating or adding onto existing buildings, as defined by Town Bylaw Chapter 12, Article IV.
The Committee has seven members who are appointed to 3-year terms, with an equal number of terms expiring each year as is feasible. One member comes from the Planning Board, and six members are appointed by the Town Manager. The Town Manager must appoint at least four building professionals, including a registered engineer or architect, a local attorney, a construction industry professional, and an environmental science professional or Conservation Commission member.
Town boards and committees are staffed by volunteers who may not be available during business hours. If you need a response during business hours, please contact the Town Manager's office.
The Building, Planning & Construction Committee meets regularly each month. Additional meetings are scheduled as needed. Public meeting dates and times are posted at Town Hall and the Dedham Public Library at least 48 hours before each meeting in compliance with the Massachusetts Open Meeting Law. Meeting agendas will also be posted on this website.
