Say No to Zoning Change

Our Town Boards need to work to make things easier for businesses to come to town.  The proposal to revamp the Zoning Ordinance is exactly what we don’t need as it will chase businesses away from Hillsborough. The proposal replaces a simple, straight forward ordinance which allows “In the commercial district …are permitted … all commercial uses”,  with a multi page chart, pages and pages of definitions and most importantly the statement: “Any use that is not listed in Table 4 …..may not be permitted to locate anywhere in Hillsborough …”  In spite of the Planning Board’s claims, it defies common sense to think that increasing regulation will attract business to our town.
