New Canaan Police building committee signs contract with architect

A firing range is one amenity the Police Building Committee discussed before they landed on a design agreement with Brian Humes of Jacunski Humes Architects, LLC. The committee voted unanimously to hire the Berlin, Conn. based architectural firm on Wednesday, Feb. 24 to determine the site needs and options for the department presently housed in the 95-year-old facility. Option A entails renovating or rebuilding the existing building, with the existing façade. Option B includes demolishing the existing building and considering a façade that emulates the current building. Option C would be to build a new headquarters behind the current building and re-purpose the existing building for town use. First Selectman Kevin Moynihan said the committee should consider a firing range. The present range, located in the basement, is no longer usable.
