Where is the proposed Hingham Public Safety Facility Building site?

The proposed site is at 335 Lincoln Street (Rte. 3A), which is a 3.07 acre site within the former historic Hingham Shipyard. At the June 2020 Annual Town Meeting, the Town approved Articles 12 & 13 to establish a Public Safety Building Committee (PSBC) and tasked it to determine the feasibility of this location to support a building that could jointly support the needs of a Police Headquarters  and a new Fire Station to replace the fire station presently located on North Street.  After a number of public meetings, and after consultation with and extensive studies by  Kaestle Boos Associates (KBA), an architectural firm with considerable experience designing Public Safety facilities, the PSBC unanimously voted that the Town purchase the site.
