You Ask, Patch Answers: What is the Latest on Sharon Commons?

Sharon Patch checks in with local officials on the longstanding project.

You Ask, Patch Answers: What is the Latest on Sharon Commons?

As part of our ongoing You Ask . . . Patch Answers series, this week we checked in with local officials for any updates regarding the Sharon Commons project.

The permitting for Sharon Commons was voted by the Sharon Zoning Board of Appeals on Jan. 9, according to Town Administrator Ben Purtiz, and there will be a subsequent filing with the Town Clerk.

The town is collaborating with the developers of the project, which include Congress Group for the commercial portion and B'nai B'rith Housing for the residential portion. 

Officials will be looking at financial assistance programs made available from the Massachusetts Development Finance Agency (MDFA), Puritz said.

"We've been in contact with them as recently as a teleconference with town staff and principals for the developer, both the residential and commercial side, for state participation for the financing," he said. "The project is at that kind of threshold point right now."
