Carver Town Meeting rejects zoning changes for solar arrays  

Credit:  www.wickedlocal.com 28 February 2012 ~~

After lengthy and often heated discussion Monday night, a majority of Town Meeting voters supported the petitioned article proposing zoning changes to allow large-scale solar arrays on land zoned for industrial use and up to one acre of agriculturally zoned land.But the article did not muster the two-thirds margin of support required to approve a zoning amendment.

After Article 7 failed, voters reopened their discussion of Article 6, changing the wording to extend the period during which selectmen will not negotiate or execute any tax or PILOT (Payment In Lieu Of Taxes) agreement for new solar projects from the end of this fiscal year (June 30) to the end of the calendar year (Dec. 31).
