Our new Best of Patch series kicks off on Monday.
Thursday, February 23, 2012
Patch is unveiling Best of Patch next week, which will allow readers to vote for their favorite businesses and places in Norton. Each Monday morning, we will post an article with a poll and ask readers to take part by voting in the poll and posting reviews on those businesses’ directory listings on Patch. Because polls are not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results and reviews on Patch Places. Please vote only once per survey, per Patch. On Friday morning, we will announce the winner of the Best Of contest for that week. For our first Best of Patch next week, we will ask you: Where is the best place to get fit in Norton? Check back next …

The rate will rise to $13.54 per thousand in assessed value across the board.
The average Norton single-family homeowner will see taxes go up about $121 in the coming year, climbing from a total of $3,833 to $3,954, but selectmen voted Thursday to keep the property tax classification even across the board, saying charging commercial and industrial property owners a greater percentage than residential owners would not benefit the town. Director of assessing Lisa Cathcart told the board shifting the rate to ask commercial and industrial entities to pay more of the burden would not give homeowners much of an advantage, but would create significant pressure on businesses in town, and selectmen agreed. "By shifting to a higher percentage for businesses, the burden outweighs the gain - it's not the right way to go," …

What residents want in town and what they will back with their dollars are often different.
People often say they wish there was more to do in Norton. You know, more places to shop, more things for kids to do, that kind of thing. Yet it remains very difficult for businesses and venues that would fit that bill to locate here, so the problem seems to just worse as time goes by. Norton has gotten much better over the years at both welcoming and appreciating the value of businesses within our borders. The permitting process has gotten more streamlined and efficient, especially on the large projects. But our town continues to be a contradiction of wants and needs, a community that wants to be all things to all people but can't afford the cost of meeting expectations. When officials in town put forth surveys asking what folks want in …
