Voter's Guide Explanation

Currently Sherburne hall is not up to building code, is a liability risk under the town’s insurance provisions and is therefore unsuitable for public use. Activities in this facility are now limited to town government meetings.

The intent of this warrant is to only bring Sherburne Hall up to code so that interested town groups involved in theater, boys scouts, recreational or fundraising endeavors will have an adequate facility for their purposes. The Sherburne Hall Committee will still be responsible for fund raising and improvements beyond bringing the hall up to necessary code requirements. Once Sherburne Hall is brought up to code it will become a true focal point for the community.   Numerous groups and organizations have already expressed an interest in providing educational and entertaining presentations from the stage.
