Patch Readers Debate the Defeated Library Project
They also discuss White City construction.
Shrewsbury Patch readers had varying opinions about the Shrewsbury Public Library building project, which was recently defeated by 158 votes. Here are just a few of the comments they shared:
- Anonymous commented on Library Project Defeated by 158 Votes: "The real shame is that so few people voted on an issue that will so significantly impact their own finances."
- Madaline Danzilio-Guerra commented on Library Project Defeated by 158 Votes: "Once again the residents have spoken. I guess some town officials and newcomers just don't get it."
- Shrewsdbury commented on Library Project Defeated by 158 Votes: "Thank God this didn't pass. I'm not sure we can take another tax hike during these tough economic times. THANK YOU to all of those who voted NO ..... you did the right thing!"
- Jennifer commented on Library Project Defeated by 158 Votes: "It's hard to believe that people were so opposed to an increase of $65 per year for an average homeowner in exchange for a state of the art, renovated library. Now we will need to fix the current facility, still spend almost as much money and not gain any space or value ..."

Several readers also shared their thoughts on the White City construction project:
- Lisa Haddad commented on What Do You Think of the White City Plaza Construction? [POLL]: "I think honestly once it is done it will be great but they need to finish it quickly, I never see anyone working down there."
- Arthur Dobson commented on What Do You Think of the White City Plaza Construction? [POLL]: "After many years of neglect by the previous owner of White City East and West the new owners are changing everything to brand White City as an excellent local shopping experience. An excellent extention of the Lakeway Business District."
