After reviewing 14 proposals submitted for an RFP issued by the Sudbury Center Improvement Advisory Committee in December, the committee has chosen The Cecil Group of Boston, along with SEA/Guertin Elkerton Engineers and Public Archaeology Laboratory, to conduct an assessment and preliminary design of the Sudbury Center. The focus of the project is to create a safer alignment of the Concord Road/Hudson Road intersection, while maintaining, preserving and enhancing the historic nature of the area. Roadway improvements, along with landscaping, streetscape enhancements, creation of pedestrian opportunities and signage will all be incorporated into the design.
The caliber of the proposals submitted was excellent, and the choice was difficult. In the end, The Cecil Group, who has worked for the town previously on design concepts for the Route 20 commercial area, was chosen as the most advantageous. The project will be primarily funded by a grant from the Sudbury Foundation, along with historic preservation/administrative funding from the Community Preservation fund. Work will begin in April 2006 with the initial assessment by the consultants. A public meeting to receive input from interested residents, users and stakeholders will be held in May 2006. Design sketches will be completed in the fall of 2006.
