Our three years of strong, united citizen and Town opposition has brought us to an inflection point: the developer is proposing to relocate Sudbury Station, allowing us to Save Our Historic Town Center and preserve it for generations to come. The new development would be located at the Melone gravel pit, and would be called Quarry North.
This requires your YES vote on Tuesday, December 11th, at a Special Town Meeting. Please mark your calendars for 7:30PM at LS High School, tell your friends, and bring your spouses along. We may never get another chance to save our Historic Town Center.
Prior to the Special Town Meeting on December 11th, there will be a Sudbury Town Forum on the Melone Disposition / Quarry North on Tuesday, November 27th 2018 at 7:30pm at LS High School. For more information, please see the link to the Town’s website below.

Feedback from Scott Nix, Chief of Police
“[The] relocation of the Sudbury Station Project [to Melone] would be most prudent. From a public safety perspective, the new proposal […] is a superior proposal to the one currently before the Town.”
Feedback from Sudbury Planning Board
“Spirited discussion […] led the Planning Board to a unanimous decision that the Quarry North proposal serves as the highest and best use of the opportunity.”
Feedback from John Whalen, Fire Chief
“The relocation of this project from Sudbury Center is very attractive from a safety standpoint, a large housing complex located in Sudbury Center would create a safety issue for the public in general.”
Feedback from Zoning Board
“The ZBA unanimously voted to strongly recommend the Board pursue the proposal presented by Quarry North, LLC, in light of the ZBA’s mandate to best develop the town’s resources under the Sudbury zoning bylaws and State law governing the Town.”
