Meeting to discuss relocating town offices

Local officials are holding a public meeting Wednesday to present a proposal that would sell the Forbes Municipal Building at 34 West Main St., and relocate the town’s offices to the nearby Bay State Commons “lifestyle center’’ complex. In a recent announcement on the proposal, officials called the move a way to create a “21st-century’’ facility for the town, and noted Bay State Commons includes commercial and residential tenants, and “was designed to be an extension of the downtown area.’’ At the meeting, officials will present details of the proposal, including the financial comparison of moving versus renovating the town’s current office building. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in Room 23 of the Forbes Municipal Building.
