The Town of Shrewsbury is currently in the process of rezoning the town center area. Many New England communities have a town center that is the focal point of civic life, and this is certainly the case in Shrewsbury. The Town Center has the look and feel of a traditional village; it is seen as an area that should be strengthened, so it becomes more of a destination. The center is generally walkable, buildings are multi-story and multi-use, and these structures are positioned close to the street and sidewalk. This traditional “main street” layout creates a comfortable environment for pedestrians and encourages people to visit more than one shop in a single visit.
