Boxford Zoning Board Debates Library Proposal
The Tri-Town Transcript recently reported that the Boxford town library proposal was turned down by the town Zoning Board Association, with one of the three board members voting against the project. A unanimous vote was needed to pass the proposal.
The vote against the proposed library project came after months of planning, redesigns, and negotiations between the town and the hired architect group and community. The main reason the project received a “no” vote was the size of the library and the impact it would have one the surrounding community. The proposed building was said to be too large for the area, which is located in a small village setting, and would “ruin the historic character of the village.”
Boxford will need to return $800,000 in grants that were awarded for the project, of those funds $360,000 has already been spent.
