Lynnfield Selectmen voted Monday night to create a capital facilities advisory committee that will weigh how to proceed on the town's building needs.
Select Board Chair Phil Crawford suggested a board of 5 to 6 members could take a closer look at various proposals that have come up in recent months. For example, the town's longer-term priorities would include a new public safety building, town hall renovations, a recreation center, and either a new library or renovations to the existing one.
The committee would also look at potential locations in town for such projects and would come up with recommendations on which projects to pursue.
Ideally, added Crawford, the advisory committee would include a member of the town's finance committee, a planning board member, a selectmen's liaison, and several community members, ideally with some expertise in construction.
Those who are interested in joining the advisory committee can send resumes and letters of interest to town hall.
