A developer has proposed several changes to town zoning bylaws, which would clear the way for construction of retail outlets and new housing at Sherborn center.
Andrew MacDonald of Dover wants to build the development on 12 acres of property next to the Sherborn Inn on North Main Street. MacDonald has submitted several petitions asking for zoning bylaw changes, which will go before voters for approval at spring Town Meeting.
The proposal indicates that MacDonald hopes to build a grocery store and two other retail outlets at the site, along with multiple housing units. Town Administrator Dennis Luttrell said the proposals have minor technical flaws, but those could be corrected on the floor of the meeting.
