WESTBOROUGH – During the Select Board meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 26, the Westborough Golf Club Building Use Committee presented its final recommendations.
Committee members described the current condition of the building on West Main Street – there is lead paint and asbestos; portions of the building have no access to electricity; the basement is unusable; and several fire hazards are present.
They said it would cost more than $900,000 – plus design fees – for all the needed repairs.
Based on input from surveys and town departments, the committee recommended a demolition and rebuild. The new building would house a pro shop and some kind of dining option, such as full service or “quick dining.”
Outdoor seating was also recommended, as well as function rooms.
Although the next steps have yet to be announced, the committee said it wants to “encourage the Select Board to move quickly” toward the design-and-build process.
The Select Board voted to approve the committee’s recommendations.
“It was a great group to work with,” said Ian Johnson, the Select Board’s representative on the committee.
