Town Meeting’s warrant sails through


Town Meeting voters on April 6 approved all 45 articles on the annual warrant, including two bylaw changes that inspired some controversy. The first concerns a zoning change aimed at allowing long-delayed renovations at Town Hall to go forward. Last month, the Zoning Board of Appeals denied a variance and a special permit for the project, based on land-setback regulations. The second measure involves limiting access to the Bare Hill Pond beach to Harvard residents. The measures are being reviewed by the state attorney general’s office as part of its oversight responsibilities. Town Meeting attracted 286 of the community’s roughly 4,000 registered voters.
