Stick2it's new Shrewsbury Page
A nice place to live! Getting a bit crowded, though...many houses/neighborhoods being built in the town. Good schools, nice public park, many town sponsored sports for kids. Hey, we just got our first "real" McD's !! Not sure why McD's has been shunned for so long by the "Town Fathers". Oh, we also have Spags! Not like it used to be, though...I miss getting shoved around in the small aisles by little old ladies! Spags even offers shopping carts and provides bags now...Maybe the millennium hit them too hard in the noggin?
Taxes are high, but many towns seem similar. Utilities are owned by Shrewsbury. SELP (Shr. Elect. Light & Power), they have their own Cable company, we now have Cable Modems, DSL is also available for many areas in town. Shrewsbury also offers a private long distance arrier... There's public water (and it's GREAT!), sewer, etc.
Police seem good...many drug busts, my hat off to them. While drugs are "everywhere", they seem to be nabbing the "big players"--people with connections in larger cities, like NY, NY; Worcester, Lawrence, etc. From what they say, Rt. 84, 290, and 495 seem to be a drug "corridor" from NY.
Plenty of neat stuff going on to keep anyone busy, if they so desire.
