Plymouth: Selectmen support increasing building height limit

At their meeting on Tuesday night, the Plymouth Board of Selectmen voted on several town meeting articles but postponed a vote on the FY 14 budget.

An article to amend zoning concerning height restriction for light industrial buildings is being sponsored by the Planning Board. Chairman Marc Garrett:

“We have been told that the height restriction of 35 ft. and the lack of visibility off our major corridors is limiting—that is from regional, national, statewide developers and development entities, so we looked at relaxing that height restriction in limited areas that exist as industrial zoning right now.”

Last month the majority of Planning Board members supported the article, with only member Malcolm MacGregor voting against. However, Selectmen are in unanimous support. Selectman Chair Matt Muratore:

“The height restrictions in the Industrial Park and Camelot Park going from 35ft. to 75 ft will help bring businesses into town and will help create some more jobs.”

Selectmen will hold their public meeting on Tuesday, January 22 at 6 p.m.– to discuss the proposed FY14 budget.
