Our gorgeous Norwell Center
Norwell's Town Center represents much more to its residents than the geographic center of town. It's the hub of our community.
The Town Center houses restaurants, businesses, function centers, a bank, our police station, and the James Library, but remains untouched by congestion.
In fact, you may just decide that the center is the most beautiful place in town.
Whom To Contact about Plans for the Future
Norwell Center has existed relatively unchanged since 1970. Some members of the town think it should be expanded or renovated to become an even greater asset to the community.
If you have an opinion, would like to contribute to this discussion, or have questions and comments, contact the Town Planner:
