A Tale of Two Initiatives - In A Nutshell

As reported earlier, The Town Council has voted to put a competing initiative before the voters.

What The Citizensí Initiative Would Do:

  1. Prevent the sale of 157 acres of Town-owned lands without a vote of the residents

  2. Protect all of these lands as either Open Space or Public Recreation - also irreversible except by a vote of the residents

What The Town Councilsí Initiative Would Do:

  1. Prevent the sale of 168 acres of Town-owned lands without a vote of the residents. (This represents an added 11 acres which comprise Town Hall and Heritage House, as well as a few slivers of otherwise unuseable land)

  2. Retain much of these lands for either Low-density Residential or Private Recreation - also irreversible except by a vote of the residents

The Critical Difference:

The lands referred to in the last paragraph (b) above, are exactly the lands that we wish to protect for Open Space or Recreation.   The Town Councilsí Initiative does exactly the opposite.
