Special Town Meeting Oct. 17

A number of articles are before the voters next Monday evening including a critical decision to sewer the Madaket area and a zoning change on South Shore road.

We encourage you to come participate in our democratic process. The Land Council supports the proposal to sewer Madaket in order to improve water quality in the hither creek and beyond. We are extremely concerned about the increased density, development, and traffic that will occur as a result of the zoning change on old south road. There are no affordable housing provisions in this zoning change and will only increase the vacation home market on Nantucket which will in turn increase the demand for affordable housing from the individuals that provide services for this seasonal market.

Here is The Nantucket Land Council’s entire recommendation sheet for your review.
