Will a “downsize” be the right size?

051013 rsShrewsbury ?In October 2012 voters denied a plan that would have approved funds for a 43,000-square library renovation and expansion that would have been combined with monies from a state library grant. Proponents are now hoping that a scaled-down proposal will meet the approval of voters this year.

After the project was scaled down to 38,490-square-feet, officials asked the architect to review three possible options. The next step will be a vote to seek funding for development of a new design. Town Meeting members will vote during a Special Town Meeting that will be held during the May 22 Town Meeting.
