Town of Shrewsbury
The Town of Shrewsbury received a $50,000 real estate technical assistance award for a study focusing on its town center. The study outlined a series of strategies to strengthen the commercial district. Another component of the study was a specific assessment of the vacant Beal Elementary School, with a focus on redevelopment opportunities for the property, located in the heart of Shrewsbury’s downtown area. The community was engaged through surveys and a visioning session with a consultant, leading to a master plan that included an action strategy, zoning recommendations, and reuse scenarios.
