After an extensive RFP review process, the contract for the market feasibility of commercial and conference space in the Johnson building was awarded by the BPL board of trustees to the firm of Byrne McKinney and Associates from Boston. The initial phase of the study will focus on the measuring of demand for various types of uses and possible configurations of the space.
