The Library Construction Committee is an advisory board created by Mayor Robert Hedlund to assist the Office of the Mayor in design and construction of the new Tufts Library.
In July of 2017, the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) awarded a $12,085,184 Provisional Construction Grant to the Town of Weymouth for construction of a new main public library. In October of 2017, the Weymouth Town Council voted unanimously to accept the grant and authorized borrowing upwards of $33,061,309 for the total project cost.
The Library Construction Committee will oversee and advise the Office of the Mayor on all phases of the building project, including selection of an Owner’s Project Manager (OPM), selection of an architect and design team, development of the building's design and construction documents, bidding of the construction project, and actual construction.
