Poll / Survey

Your voice matters! Please take a few minutes to rank the following Initial Concepts.

These plan diagrams were presented at the second community listening opportunity held on Wednesday, September 14th at the Elmwood Community Center. By ranking these options, you are helping to inform the floor plan layout, the placement of the building on the site, and what form the building may take.

By reviewing potential layouts, residents may start to visualize how programming adjacencies might work, or how flexible spaces may be utilized for different purposes throughout the day.

Your feedback is highly valued, and will be taken into consideration as the initial concepts are refined. Often, the preferred option evolves from a combination or adjustment of elements from each of the options, as it moves through an iterative design process.


All Options

There are regulatory wetland areas identified on the 100 Mayflower site. Currently, the study team is keeping the new construction clear of these zones. In some cases, existing parking or building elements to remain encroach these zones. The study team is working with Town departments to understand the impact of these 150’ regulated wetland zones.

Option 1

Option 1 retains all three levels of the existing St. Brigid School and repurposes the building for community use. The total square footage of the existing building is less than the proposed program for the New Elmwood Community Center, Senior Center and Library project. Therefore, a sizeable addition will be required.

Please rank this floor plan option on a scale of 1 star (strongly dislike) to 5 stars (works well). A 3 star vote will signify there is room to improve.
