The Oct. 15 Town Meeting warrant includes a lengthy article to establish an overlay district in Walpole for large-scale ground-mounted solar photovoltaic projects with a minimum output capacity of 250 kilowatts. Projects within the district would be subject to site plan review by the Planning Board, which would look at height, setbacks, landscape screening, public safety, historic impacts, and other issues. Parking requirements are also included for projects in the overlay district as well as requirements for removal of panels when a project is discontinued. The proposal would not affect smaller solar energy panels proposed by homeowners or businesses.
