Berlin Voters Nix Mall

Berlin Town Meeting voters turned down a rezoning request that would have allowed the proposed $105 million, 800,000-square-foot Highland Commons mall to be built on the Berlin/Hudson line, the MetroWest Daily News reports.

Voters decided that trying to preserve the rural character of their little community was worth more than the promised property taxes and mitigation payments.

Developers will likely go ahead with a smaller mall just within Hudson, the article notes.
