A new Chilmark fire station inched a little closer to reality last week when selectmen reviewed a preliminary site design that they said could work.

Island architects from Pacheco Ross presented revised drawings for a new a $5 million, two-story, 1,200-square-foot building on property adjacent to the town hall.

Plans presented last month were rejected by selectmen due to fire engine driveways exiting onto Middle Road. The new design pushes the building back to a small area next to the town hall, giving emergency services more traffic flexibility.

“I think this plan shows real promise,” said selectman Warren Doty.

Still, Mr. Doty was concerned at the price tag and said a $5 million building is too expensive for the town. He pointed out the proposed five bathrooms as an example of excess, and urged officials to look into other changes that could bring the cost down.

He also noted that the site’s proximity to a wetland could hold up the plans, since a 25-foot buffer zone will be required. Reservations aside, he called it the best plan the board has seen so far.

“This is the closest we’ve come to getting a plan for a new fire house,” Mr. Doty said. “This one to me looks doable.”

Selectman Bill Rossi said he would like to see endorsements from the fire department and Tri-Town ambulance before sending the plans on to the site review committee and conservation commission.

Ongoing contract negotiations with fire chief David Norton were also discussed briefly. Selectman Jim Malkin provided Mr. Norton with a letter from town counsel that outlines terms. Mr. Malkin said selectmen are eager to reach an agreement with Mr. Norton and will call an executive session when he is ready to sign the contract.

“We want to make it work,” he said.

In other business, selectmen swiftly denied a request from the Netflix series She’s Gotta Have It to film sunset scenes at Menemsha Beach in July. The series was created by director Spike Lee, a seasonal Oak Bluffs resident. Mr. Rossi said after the meeting that Chilmark has a blanket policy to not allow filming during the summer months.

Selectmen also agreed to a parking plan for the Martha’s Vineyard Film Festival that will allow overflow parking at the library after hours and at Conroy Real Estate. The film festival will provide a parking attendant.

Selectmen are still looking for volunteers to join a seven-member Peaked Hill Pastures land use working group that will explore possible uses for the property, including affordable housing. Committee members will meet every other Wednesday morning for four months, excluding August, before presenting options to the town. Interested residents are encouraged to contact town administrator Tim Carroll at townadmnistrator@chilmark.gov.

The board congratulated patrolman Elizabeth Rogers — known to Chilmark School students as Officer Liz — on the completion of a probationary period and promotion to full-time officer.

“Everything I’ve heard has been good and spectacular,” said Mr. Rossi.

Selectmen also appointed Nicole Whitney as a special police officer and Bradley Carroll as a traffic officer to assist police chief Jonathan Klaren in the busy summer months.
