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.
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."
