The Board of Trustees has asked the Building Committee to move forward toward the goal of revitalizing the Salisbury Street Building. Renovations to be considered include:

  • Construction of an addition that would provide needed extra space for offices, library, meetings, and storage
  • Renovations to the existing building’s exterior, sanctuary, social hall, kitchen, patio, restrooms and parking lots

Congregational input is needed to help us make the best possible design decisions. Brawer & Hauptman Architects, the Temple’s architect, has significant experience in assisting congregations with their decision making processes. Consequently, we have retained the architect to facilitate the meetings listed below:

3/15/15 Congregational Meeting to gather design input

The Temple’s architect will present the Feasibility Study that was completed in November 2013. The Feasibility Study designs, based upon input from congregants during the integration process, are considered a “starting point” for our discussions to help us think about design possibilities. We want to know your hopes and desires for our sacred space. Your input on design priorities and goals will be considered as we develop our final design. A “Facility Planning Survey” will be made available to all congregants after this meeting to help capture your input. The survey will also be available on the Temple’s website.

Where: Salisbury Street Social Hall
When:  Sunday, 3/15/15 - 11:00 AM

4/19/15 and 4/20/15 Congregational Design Workshop

The Intensive Design Workshop process provides all interested congregants an opportunity to provide significant additional input into the proposed designs and renovations.
