Accessory Apartment bylaw that changes the waiting period to use
apartment addition to a single family home from five years to one
year. This is proposed by the Local Housing Partnership.
• Voted 3-0 not to support Article 36, a citizen’s petition by
Washington Street resident Nancy Lundgren written as a resolution
to support single density zoning. Selectmen said they supported
the concept and were against double density zoning but disagreed
with the second sentence of the article that stated that “Duxbury
has become home to double density sites in the past few years.”
• Voted 3-0 to support Article 37, a bylaw amendment that changes
the title of a guest house to a bed and breakfast but leaves the defi-
nition alone. The current bylaw describes a bed and breakfast but
the title doesn’t match the definition.
• Voted 2-1 to support Article 38, an amendment to the zoning
bylaw regulating lot coverage in neighborhood business districts.
The current bylaw allows fifty percent building coverage on a lot.
This proposal changes the site coverage to no more than 70 per-
cent, including building coverage set at 20 percent. Open space
coverage is set at 30 percent. A similar article has been in the
town meeting warrant for the last two years but voters did not get
a chance to act upon it as it was indefinitely postponed. Selectmen
Chairman Shawn Dahlen voted against this article.
• Voted 2-1 to support Article 39, a new definition of open space.
Selectmen Chairman Shawn Dahlen voted against recommending
this article.
• Voted 2-1 not to support Article 40, changes to the parking rules
and regulations. Selectmen Dahlen and Betsy Sullivan voted not to
support this article, while Selectman Chris Donato voted in favor
of it. This new section to the zoning bylaw requires all new parking
spaces to be paved and doesn’t allow gravel parking areas. Dahlen
and Sullivan did not agree with the larger sized parking spaces the
bylaw changes specifies.
• Voted 3-0 not to support Article 41 that eliminates “use vari-
ances” from the bylaw. Selectmen were concerned that this change
removes “potential flexibility” from the bylaw.
• Voted 3-0 to support Article 42, which is a citizen’s petition to
change the zoning of a portion of a 4-acre lot on Cape Verde Terrace
to residential from wetlands protection. Town officials have said
the zoning is incorrect and there are no wetlands on the property
where the zoning map identifies some. Owners Bill and Doreen
Driver sponsored this petition and they hope to split the lot into
two properties.
• Voted 3-0 to support Article 43, a citizen’s petition to have town
meeting accept Cushing Drive and Ice House Road as public ways.
The Planning Board is against this article, saying that there are still
eleven houses in this residential subdivision yet to be built and that
taking the roads as public ways could stick the town with the repair
bills if the road is damaged whenever the homes are constructed.
Dahlen felt that the town has protections in place for road repairs,
such as permits and performance bonds.

At our upcoming town meeting, we will be asked to support the purchase of the Blairhaven Retreat
property from our Community Preservation Act (CPA) fund. While we are large proponents of the
CPA program, and think the Community Preservation Committee does wonderful work on behalf of
Duxbury, this proposal is not appropriately planned prior to asking taxpayers to make this level of
commitment.

If the purchase of Blairhaven was genuinely used as conservation land, or “open land” without ex-
panded parking, infrastructure, and other potential costs, it could be wonderful use of CPA funds. As
currently described, however, we are being asked to support the purchase now, and determine how
the property will be used at a later date. The number of potential “uses” is enormous, and the impli-
cations are just as broad. Why are we being asked to put the “cart before the horse”?

The town is being asked to spend $3.15 Million (more than is in the current CPA fund and requir-
ing us to borrow money) to buy a piece of property without a formal plan for its use. It is more than
reasonable for taxpayers to understand how the property will be used before spending the entire CPA
fund, borrowing $800K, and essentially eliminating our ability to make other purchases in the short/
medium term. This is not the environment to make “speculative” purchases and hope that good
judgment is used at a later date.

As noted above, the initial purchase of the property is $3 Million. Another $150K is being set aside
to fund other potential costs that are not identified. Is it enough? Tearing down buildings, making
improvements to parking, installing lights, maintenance and clean up, studies to understand traf-
fic flow and potential impact to the bay, insurance requirements, security? The list could be a lot
longer, but without understanding the usage, it is hard to calculate the ultimate cost? What we do
know, is that if the property was sold as three lots (the alternative proposal), new real estate taxes of
$75-100K a year would be paid to the town. The ten year impact of that lost revenue is $750K to
$1 Million! The town is being asked to make a decision without understanding the entire economic
picture of the project. Any operating costs that will be required to support the ultimate use of the
property will become an ongoing cost that is required from our town budget.

Many town residents walk, run, bike and take their dogs along Standish and Crescent Street. Cur-
rent traffic to the Standish Monument and Howlands Landing is manageable along those roads and
is an accepted part of living in the neighborhood (not unlike how the Powder Point residents support
beach traffic). Current “sight lines” can be challenging as you drive around the loop, and if you have
children in the neighborhood, you constantly worry about someone driving to quickly around the
bends. With open ended “uses” to the property, it is unclear what that will bring in increased traffic.
Although this is a concern to the immediate residents only, it can surely be understood by any parent
or family in town.

Howlands landing is owned by the town, and will not change no matter what happens to the
Blairhaven property. There has been some discussion that this “preserves” Howlands Landing and is
not accurate.

In the end, we need more information before the purchase is made, and not afterwards. This will
help us make the most intelligent choices with our tax dollars, as we struggle to fund many initia-
tives around town.

Thank you.
