The Town of Middleburg might be just two years away from moving into a new town office.
The Town Council last Thursday night discussed the schedule it will follow to find firms to design and build a new town office at a yet-to-be-identified location. The timeline details construction beginning in late September 2020 and wrapping up almost exactly a year later.
The schedule begins with a deadline to advertise a request for proposals for a design firm on Sept. 23, followed by a Dec. 13 deadline to award a contract. By Feb. 27, 2020, the design firm will be required to complete the preliminary design schematics and site plan. It should finalize them by March 12. Less than four months later, on July 7, the town should issue an invitation for bids soliciting construction firms interested in building the new office.
By Sept. 11, 2020, the town plans to sign a contract with a firm. That work should complete by Sept. 29, 2021, with final site work to be completed by Nov. 20, 2021.
Town Administrator Danny Davis said the town staff would “push hard” to make the timeline reality.
