Zoning Board of Appeals, 4/24/24

It was an unusual night for a Zoning Board meeting, and the group was moved to the Select Board Chambers in Town Hall for the session. However, a light agenda kept them focused on a single case, which envisioned a new future for the building at 315 Chestnut Street. The meeting is currently available for viewing in the window below:
