Historic Zoning Commission: October 27, 2008 - 5:00 PMThe Historic commission's meeting tonight will have on it's agenda the property owned by Phyllis Campbell who made the horrible mistake of asking to have her property rezoned. Her property is within eye sight of the Historical district so our fine town council said that it should be added. She did not ask for it, but what the heck. Tonight she will find out if she loses a lot of property rights in the name of pretty'fication.
Next Town Council Workshop is: October 28, 2008 - 7:00 PM
