[ARCHIVED] Members Needed - Shrewsbury Historic Preservation Committee

On March 27, 2018, the Board of Selectmen established a nine (9) member, Shrewsbury Historic Preservation Committee. The Board is seeking three (3) residents to serve as members on the committee. Interested persons should have a demonstrated interest and commitment to the matter of “historic structures” located in town worthy of long-term protection from demolition and must be a registered voter of the Town.


The scope of the charge is to use Assessor’s data base to establish a baseline for focus of attention on structures within certain years of registration with the town or building permits and determine reasonable outcomes to reduce or eliminate the eventual demolition of such structures.  Additionally to explore changes in zoning by laws to allow for greater flexibility for side and rear yard setbacks to avoid high land values and new home values to cause the likely demolition of such structures provided that an appropriate deed restriction is placed on the subject structure.


The committee will receive staff support from the Office of the Town Manager, Assessor, Building Inspector and others as required and an intern from an area institution.


Interested persons are asked to send a letter of interest by mail to John Lebeaux, Chairman, Board of Selectmen, 100 Maple Avenue, or by email to selectmen@shrewsburyma.gov no later than 4:30pm on July 16, 2018.
