Sharon feels the impact of regional issues and concerns
Looking back: 2021
SHARON — Sharon residents led the way in 2021 on protests to cuts in services proposed for Sharon Hospital. An area of particular concern for the “Save Sharon Hospital” group was the planned elimination of labor and delivery. A large group turned out Nov. 6 on the Sharon Green for a protest rally.
Veterans’ Field gained a new playground in 2021, and soon afterward a memorial bench was added, with a shade tree.
Speeding and overuse of recreational areas in residential neighborhoods remain active concerns throughout the town and the region. Two townwide forums were held at Veterans’ Field to gather input. The issue continues into the coming year.
Plans for expansion of the Town Hall parking lot are moving ahead, looking toward work being done in the coming year.
