I got a question. Do you think zoning changes should be done at a Special Town meeting. I think it should not be able to be addressed that way. Shouldn't it be done at the annual town meeting?? Just asking.

TOWN MANAGER should take action to write an article asking town voters to empower our Board of Appeals to use dimensional permits for those times an applicant request a deviation from our local zoning by law. Massachusetts State Zoning Laws Chapter40A Section (Dimensional Permit) allows for this. Chapter 40A Section (Variance) prohibits this. The Town of Tewksbury should Properly Provide for those times an applicant requests that deviation.To give a deviation is not wrong doing, to give a variance is. The Board of Selectmen should put absolute pressure on the manager to do so,as to not act would be unfair to residents. The legality of this issue is something that should not be ignored. This article should come from Town Hall,period.

Zoning Changes should be done at an annual town meeting ONLY> I hope in the future the Town Clerk will advise the community to be aware of this. If i am wrong, please explain How do we make a zoning change at a special town meeting? This is an important topic as our entire Town Meeting process is quite different and I believe this action of placing articles in for a special is done with thoughts that we can do so. Again, our process is different and new to many, regardless it should be upheld as intended.The only way to do that is explain how it is We Can put a zoning change question forth to the people at a Special town Meeting.
