Solar Overlay District
The Planning Board has completed its work on crafting a new Solar Electric Installations bylaw for the Town, and has made a recommendation to Town Meeting that this bylaw be adopted. This bylaw is on the warrant for the Special Town Meeting on January 17, 2012.
The new bylaw will allow for ground mounted solar electric installations in designated locations through by-right provisions rather than requiring a special permit. It will also satisfy one of the state requirements for receiving Green Community Certification. The complete text of the proposed bylaw as well as the overlay district map is on file at the Town Hall and may be viewed during regular business hours.
