Public Hearing 8.24.21: Parking

The Select Board will be holding a public hearing to hear from residents about a proposed change to Ordinance 75-01 regulating parking.

Section #3 describing the no-parking area on Main Street would be changed to include the additional language noted in red:

“From Front Street to a point 15’ west of the Prospect Street intersection except that compact cars may park directly in front of 619, 621, 629 and 631 Main Street. A compact car is defined as a vehicle that fits between the road and the sidewalk such that it is parked entirely off the road without touching the sidewalk.”

The public hearing is at the Town Hall on Tuesday, August 24th at 6:30pm. Those who are unable to attend are welcome to submit comments in writing at Town Hall or via email.

Message from the RWSD

After discussions on current well levels and relief from recent rain, the RWSD is lifting its restrictions on outdoor water use EXCEPT related to irrigation / lawn watering. Restrictions on lawn watering are being maintained at this time throughout the District. Well levels will continue to be monitored and adjustments to the restrictions will be made as necessary. Meanwhile, District members are encouraged to take voluntary measures to conserve water (both indoor and outdoor) whenever possible.
