Village of Sherburne Downtown Strategic Plan

In addition to traditional downtown revitalization planning, the plan included a conditions study of the vacant Sherburne Inn, a vacant and deteriorated downtown landmark and an investigation into redevelopment options for property surrounding the Inn was developed.
