It was more like 7-8 hours (over two hearings) of public testimony regarding mixed-used zoning with the overwhelming majority AGAINST the proposal. Also presented was a petition with over 700 signatures against the rezoning of Main Street. Yet, the Town Bored voted to approve the proposal. That our Councilwoman decided to abstain from the vote should itself be news.
