Town library, wind farm zoning are top Ashland items
When voters head to the polls on March 11 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Ashland Elementary School gymnasium, they will be deciding on a $6.2 million budget, said Town Administrator Paul Branscombe.
If the article passes, the town would seek grants and private funding to aid in the cost of the building, but the town would need to raise the majority of the money through taxes. The article would have a significant impact on the town tax rate if passed, he said.
Residents will also vote on a zoning ordinance regarding large wind power developments in town that some residents have wrongly interpreted as being permissive of new projects, said Planning Board Chair Susan MacLeod.
The ordinance includes specific sizes and limits on projects, and requires in-depth studies of the effects of projects on the town, as well as thorough studies of decommissioning costs.
“But we looked at the other towns in the region, and we just decided to be proactive about it rather than having something forced on us,” MacLeod said.
