No agreement on bylaw for solar installations

The Planning Board and Energy Management Committee met Monday night to continue working on a town bylaw governing solar installations, but came away without an agreement, said Planning Board chairman Jay Ryder. He said the board feels that a developer seeking to build a commercial solar farm or residents wanting to install ground-mounted panels in their yards should go through the town’s regular permitting process, which requires a site-plan review and approval from the Planning board. But he said the energy committee may bring its own proposal to the annual Town Meeting May 13. He said the Planning Board does not yet have a bylaw proposal for Town Meeting. “Some towns rush to get these things on the warrant,” he said, “and then get shot down at Town Meeting. These things take time to develop.”
