A call to support zoning bylaw changes

Oct 12, 2015

To the editor,

I am writing in support of the proposed zoning bylaw changes for the properties on Seth Tobey Road and the changes are scheduled to appear on the warrant for Town Meeting the evening of Oct. 26. As you know, there has been a significant amount of retail development in the area contiguous to the properties proposed for the zoning change. If the change is approved the new zoning would allow a more uniform use of the parcels involved and blend more appropriately with the existing zoning. In addition, the town would realize an increase in the existing tax base without adding a burden to our school system or other town services.

It is gratifying to see that our town is finally starting to grow its commercial tax base. This will lead to local job growth, more dollars spent within our town and the convenience of local shopping opportunities for all residents. It is truly a win-win for all Wareham citizens.

Please join me in the support of this zoning change.
