Plymouth: Town Meeting Wraps Up in One Session

Plymouth’s Fall Annual Town Meeting says no to most spending, yes to taller buildings. Town Meeting Representatives squashed a plan to continue rehabbing the waterfront. The final section from Mayflower II to Town Wharf, would replace the seawall and add a promenade at a cost of $16.9 million. State funding would have paid $5 million. The seawall will still need to be replaced. Town Meeting approved the new job of facilities manager to oversee Plymouth’s 36 municipal buildings, but turned down traffic improvements on Obery Street, improvement costs the state would pay the bulk of. It approved a zoning change of the Simes House,  a community center for Manomet, from residential to commercial. It increased the height of new buildings in a portion of the Plymouth Industrial Park from 35 to 60 feet. And it restricted retail sales of marijuana to the same industrial park. Chairman of Selectmen Ken Tavares.

Plymouth’s Fall Annual Town Meeting completed all its business in one session.
