Dennis Town Hall Demolition to be Put to Vote in Fall

Dennis Town SealDENNIS – Town Hall may be no more after a vote this fall.

The Dennis Board of Selectmen voted last month to ask voters at the next Town Meeting to demolish the structure, using the land to expand the cemetery and add parking spaces for a rail trail extension.

Dennis Department of Public Works Assistant Superintendent Greg Rounseville says the estimated $1 to $3 million dollars to renovate the building isn’t worth the cost, especially since the land is so close to a cemetery and a future rail trail area.

“The town hall property is an important location due to its proximity to these properties,” Rounseville said. “It currently provides parking and access to these access; it’s one of the 5 largest parcels set aside for such a purpose,” he said.

Rounseville also said that selling the land would leave little room for public access and parking.

The building’s zoning is residential, which Town administrator Rick White said would not allow for business development.

Demolition plans will be produced later this year.
