Board calls for ‘no’ vote

The Planning Board is recommending that voters turn down proposed solar bylaws on the warrant at Monday’s annual Town Meeting. The bylaws would govern the installation of large-scale solar projects, and were submitted by the Marion Energy Management Committee. But Planning Board members said the bylaws would allow developers to bypass the special-permit process. In a letter to be read at Town Meeting, Planning Board members said the board “would require obtaining a special permit for any ground-mounted solar array,” but “no such provisions are included” in the proposed bylaw. The letter says the board will work with the town agencies and residents to develop appropriate solar bylaws for consideration at fall Town Meeting.
