The Board of Public Works is holding an informational meeting and workshop with Business and Property Owners of the Downtown Area. The meetings will be held on February 21, 2018 at 1 pm and a second meeting at 6:30 pm in the Police Station Public Meeting Room. Both meetings will have the same information presented and are open for anyone to attend.

The Board will hold future meetings with other boards, residents and the general public.

Downtown Zoning Bylaw Change Proposals

The Planning Board has proposed two changes in the Zoning Bylaws that would affect the Downtown area. They have postponed the submission of these articles for the Town Meeting in order to incorporate any desired modifications from the Town's discussions into the documents. Attached are the documents for review in the Downtown Initiative Proposed Zoning Changes (PDF). Please contact Nancy Runkle, Town Planner 508-699-0116, if you have any questions or comments.

The Department of Public Works is seeking initial input from Residents, Property Owners, Businesses and other Stake Holders to help shape our Downtown Renovation Project goals. The following is a short survey that prompts users to answer questions about their impressions and desires of what will help create a more vibrant downtown. The survey will be available until September 15, 2017. After obtaining results of our survey, the Board of Public Works will be holding a number of meetings that will include residents, Boards and Committees, Property Owners and Businesses to further develop specific plans to address the needs of the Downtown. To date, nothing is set in stone and we will remain open to a researching solutions for number of different ideas and concerns. We appreciate your time in taking this survey.

The Board of Public Works has agreed to mill and overlay the roadway from Bank Street to Park St./10-Mile River to hold the road over until the full Downtown Renovation Project can be performed. The Highway Department is preparing a schedule for this work to be completed in late October or early November to allow for any settlement in the road from the excavation work.

  • The Department will notify all residents and businesses when the paving work schedule is established.
  • We appreciate the patience of all of the properties adjacent to this very cumbersome, but necessary project.
  • To report a problem, you can call 508-643-6636, or fill out the form, which will be emailed to the Department Project Manager.

Informational Meetings

The North Attleborough Water Department held two public informational meetings regarding the Downtown Water Main Replacement Program on Tuesday, May 17th, and Wednesday, May 18th to discuss the upcoming water main project. Please view the Downtown Water Main Replacement Project (PDF).

The Town of North Attleborough is in the process of planning long-term upgrades to the Downtown Area, including a water main replacement project and a Downtown Streetscape Renovation Project.

Additionally, the Town has received funding for improvements to East Street, from Elm Street to Chestnut Street and Bruce Avenue. This project is intended to supplement the proposed 21 East Street Development at the old Balfour Building site on East St.

Throughout these projects, the Department will continue to update this site to keep the residents and businesses informed of the progress and provide links to some of the progress plans we are working on.
