The appeal by Amy Baldwin of the Zoning Board of Appeal’s (ZBA) decision to grant relief for the library project has been dismissed by the land court judge. The judge’s conclusion states: “A final judgment will enter in favor of SSBC and the Sharon Zoning Board of Appeals, and against Baldwin.”
The three-year delay caused by this case and the previous ZBA denial has resulted in additional costs for the project. On May 1, Town Meeting will decide whether the Town will either appropriate already gathered tax monies to pay for the overage or abandon the project. Abandoning the project would entail: 1. forfeiting the grant, 2. wasting the approximately 1.6M already spent, and 3. starting a new project to ensure Sharon has a functioning library, which likely will cost taxpayers more than the current project.
