We interviewed three architect firms and selected a finalist: Oudens Ello Architecture. We’ve seen some of their work already — they designed the new libraries in Millis and West Tisbury. Two other projects of theirs are under construction now: the new libraries in Eastham and Scituate. We’re very excited about working with them on a great solution to Kingston’s library space issues.
We’re also happy to welcome a new member to our committee, Selectmen Lindsay Wilson. He brings a deep knowledge of the laws and regulations that affect this project, as well as an understanding of Kingston’s planning, finances, and procedures that will be very valuable to us.
