Charlestown voters back zoning changes
The $450,000 bond article needed three-fifths of the vote to pass, but was soundly defeated, 393-151, Planning and Zoning Administrator David Edkins said Wednesday.
“The purpose was to get our town clerk out of the basement of the library building,” Edkins said.
Incumbent Selectman Steven Neill was reelected, 314-236, over challenger Jack Berquist.
Voters also voted 308-210 to support a zoning article to add two Main Street lots to the business district that they abut.
Voters also authorized the Heritage Commission to assume the composition and duties of a Historic District Commission, discontinued the Highway Advisory Board and approved the proposed $4,718,879 budget, which includes a $3,819,913 operating budget and water and sewer funds operating budget.
