In response to circulation of a news story published by an advocacy group regarding the Town Council’s recent action on an ordinance to amend the zoning code regarding the commercial retail sale of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms in residential zones the Town wishes to clarify that although the enacted legislation limits these business activities to certain zoning districts, as other municipalities have done, local entrepreneurship and small business opportunities are supported and encouraged within the Town’s historic downtown, commercial, and industrial districts.

While the discussions surrounding this important community issue were lengthy, and met with various opinions from town citizens, the democratic process provided by our charter and followed by the Mayor and Town Council allowed all parties to be heard equally in a civil, transparent, professional, and impartial manner.
