2018 Williamstown Town Meeting Preview
With the Williamstown Planning Board having pulled the hot-button proposal of remapping the town's zoning districts last month, Williamstown's annual town meeting will be less exciting than initially expected.
The Berkshire Eagle reports at the March 12 Select Board meeting, the Planning Board presented a proposal for a new zoning map, which would create four additional districts out of the current "General Residence" district.
That proposal was met with pushback from some residents who feel that the suggested zones were inequitable and divisive so the board began to scale back the proposal. In April, they decided to not move forward with it at this year's town meeting.
This year's 32-article warrant includes an effort to reconstruct a building to use as a police station, imposing a local sales tax on marijuana, and provide funding to the Sand Springs Recreation Center.
When: 7 p.m. Tuesday
Where: Williamstown Elementary School, 115 Church St.
