Message from the Board of Library Trustees

The judge has decided on the Trustee’s motion for summary judgment. The ZBA decision denying approval of the new public library project has been annulled. The judge has ordered the ZBA to hold another hearing on the Library Trustees’ request for a special permit and variance for the 1 School Street plan within 60 days. The ZBA must “balance the usefulness of the project as a Dover Amendment-protected educational use against any compelling municipal interests that are served by the Sharon zoning bylaw” according to the Order of Remand.

You can find the summary judgment decision and order remand from the court on the  Sharon Public Library Foundation website.  Please contact the trustees at for questions.
