From the Selectmen
There will be a Public Hearing on Thursday, May 23, at 6:30 pm at Town Hall to examine ordinance changes and resolutions that will be coming to a vote at Town Meeting.
The Planning Board is proposing two zoning ordinance changes. The first would allow a property owner to apply for a conditional use permit for a standby generator when there are no locations on the lot that would conform to structure setbacks. The other would provide a framework, currently lacking in the ordinance, for evaluating applications for parks and recreational areas.
The Shellfish Conservation Committee also has an ordinance revision aiming to clarify language and practices outlined in their ordinance.
The Conservation Committee is submitting a resolution in support of the implementation of a carbon fee and dividend system and a second resolution that obligates the Town to consider the impact of climate change in their decision-making.
The 3 Bridged Islands Broadband Task Force has an article asking that the town be permitted to apply for funding for broadband services.
On Tuesday, June 11, 2019, Arrowsic citizens will be asked to approve the RSU 1 budget for school year 2019/2020. There are no other ballot questions or candidate elections to be voted on. Please note, polling hours are 11 A.M. to 7 P.M.
Town Revaluation: New property values will not be reflected in property tax bills until Fall 2019. Please feel free to contact a member of the Select Board if you have questions or concerns.
