Click here to see what the Zoning Ordinance would look like if this Article passes:
What it means: Article 11 would discontinue the use of a written description of zoning boundaries, replacing it with parcel data in the Town’s GIS mapping System, overlaid with the Zoning Map.
Those in favor say: No one spoke in favor of the Article, except to explain its intention.
Those against say: A point of view was registered at Deliberative Session to indicate that GIS data is derived from the Tax Maps so that “overlaying” the data would not provide clarity. The speaker indicated that Tax Maps are not intended for purposes of delineating districts. In the speaker’s opinion, if Article 11 passes, it would provide less clear District lines.
