Town Meeting Warrant Article of the Day – Article 27: Amend Zoning Bylaw – By adding Part 13 Inclusionary Housing Requirement

As we ready for Town Meeting, the Town will be presenting information every day on different warrant articles.


Article 27: Amend Zoning Bylaw – By adding Part 13 Inclusionary Housing Requirement

An Inclusionary Zoning Bylaw is one of many tools that a community uses to develop and maintain affordable housing units that are eligible to be included on the Town’s Subsidized Housing Inventory required by the state.

Any proposed project that included more than 7 rental or ownership housing units on a parcel or contiguous parcel shall include at least 15 percent of the total housing units as affordable units on the same site, at a different site or pay a fee toward affordable housing.

This bylaw aims to require production of high-quality dwelling units affordable to low- or moderate-income households.

Town Meeting Warrant Article of the Day – Article 26

As we ready for Town Meeting, the Town will be presenting information every day on different warrant articles.


Article 26: Rescind unused and unneeded borrowing authorizations.

The Town has several bonding authorizations from past years where the full amount authorized at Town Meeting was not necessary.  We are rescinding these authorizations to take these bonds off the Town's books.  
Think of this like you are pre-approved for a car loan for $25,000, but the car you purchase is only $24,500.  You do not want to keep the extra $500 on your credit report when you do not need it and are not using it.
