Articles related to development of the Rattlesnake Hill area have been withdrawn from Monday’s Town Meeting by the Board of Selectmen, Selectman William Heitin said. The articles, which would have allowed a cluster development of 98 homes on less than 100 acres while preserving adjacent land for conservation, were delayed for two reasons, he said. Members of town boards and committees have indicated they need more time to consider the plan, and a group of residents believe they can identify a funding source for the town to purchase all of the land, rather than allow any development. Heitin said the selectmen will give boards and committees two more months to weigh the plan and submit questions to the Board of Selectmen, which will seek answers from Brickstone Properties, the developer. Town Meeting starts at 7 p.m. at Sharon High School.
