If I recall correctly, the Bow Rec summer program is charging $600 for the 3 day a week, 6 week program this summer which is a big increase from previous years $375. Is this increase to match BYC's prices?

so, I would assume you would have an inspection done before a P&S is signed...

I have one other question pertaining to capacity. Thank you

Will the preschool have a shared space with the before/after care, or have their own classroom space as they do now?
Jessica Raymond
42:52
Do we have info about a 3rd party purchaser? Why are the current owners pushing for the town to purchase BYC?
Tammy Ciminesi
43:17
is there custodial staff to clean/sanitize the building?

Katie Gagne, Old Woodhill Road: It feels like we would be combining three separate programs into one (Celebrating Children, Rec Program, and Bow Youth); is this going to cause a reduction in the amount of kids served especially with before/after school and summer care?

I have one more question about the operating budget
Jonathan’s iPhone
48:21
Follow up to my previous question, if we can get a list of ages/ installations before the town meeting for roof, HVAC, septic system?

49:31
Kevin McChan, Pine Crest Drive: 1.) If capacity and other building repairs/upgrades are needed at BES, can before and after care be held at BES? Has this option been evaluated? 2.) Does the BYC have a business permit from the town, if so, what business does it allow them to operate and could this be changed in a way to push a potential new owner to offer certain services?
Tammy Ciminesi
50:01
How does one set up an educational space that is designed for 3-4 year olds and also school aged students? Is there storage for supplies for each group?
Tammy Ciminesi
51:17
(For example, desk/table height is very different for pre k and 1st grade)

55:32
Jonathan Pietrangelo, Whittier Dr, one last question. Has there been thought to put a reserve for funds needed to cover costs to bring BYC up to code (if any building codes are found to be needing updated)? For example, codes associated with handicap accessibility, fire alarms, etc.
Martin Osterloh
56:06
Martin Osterloh, 6 Westgate Dr. What would happen to Celebrating Children if this purchase would not occur? Would they stay at the municipal building or relocated elsewhere? Celebrating Children employs residents of Bow and provides a vital service to residents!
kevin
58:54
Kevin McChan, Pine Crest Drive: Thanks. 1.) Could before and after care services be offered using the BES? Has this option been considered?

Since we are in a Covid year, where does the money come from to cover costs and wages if the program fees don’t over the costs?
Katie Lyon-Pingree
59:46
Katie Pingree (Pinnacle Lane) The flyer the came in the mail this week refers to “providing a hub for activity and interaction between al age levels of the community.” Does the town have the intention to open up the BYC facility to adult programs as well or keep it for children only?
Krissy Nikitas
01:04:39
BYC’s program did Pre-K for a few years—but this year it was eliminated during the summer. Will this option come back with sibling priority enrollment?
Eric Spargimino
01:07:50
Eric Spargimino (Ogden Drive), thank you for the informative meeting and great explanations. Thanks to the Morrisons for the great opportunity for the Town.

Would purchasing this building eliminate the need to do improvements to the current community center building?
Krissy Nikitas
01:10:19
Yes, that’s exactly it.
Krissy Nikitas
01:10:51
Okay, thank you.
Laura Dykstra
01:13:08
Could revenue from Parks & Rec earned by incorporating the BYC be used toward improvements to the community center building?
