As we ready for Town Meeting on May 16, 2023, the Town will be presenting information every day on different warrant articles.
Article 34: Amend Zoning Bylaw – Article 8 Supplementary Regulations
This Article proposes to create a formal review process with the Planning Board as the regulatory authority for proposed uses that are consistent with MGL c. 40A §3 (also known as the Dover Amendment).
The Dover Amendment exempts agricultural, religious, and educational uses from certain zoning restrictions. By limiting what zoning requirements apply to land and structures that hold these uses, the Dover Amendment makes it easier for these uses to build structures to serve their needs.
