Vote No for Article 27
Article 27 proposes an amendment to town zoning bylaws that would permit for-profit educational uses in the RO, RS, RT, and CN districts. The petitioner is asking the town to allow establishment of for-profit schools within all residential districts throughout the town and in commercial neighborhood business districts (CN). Examples of for-profit educational schools include, but are not limited to, driver's education schools, music school, language programs, after-school math/reading tutoring, SAT prep, financial training, and daycare programs. Placing businesses like these in a residential neighborhood may lead to increased traffic and parking issues, increased noise, pedestrian safety issues, and decreased property values. In addition, it opens up the possibility of any commercial enterprise of any size operating within residential areas.
