Charlestown to look at Main Street zoning regulations
At the Nov. 5 meeting, board Vice Chairwoman Sharon Francis brought in proposed zoning changes for discussion.
The recent approval of a new Jiffy Mart convenience store on the north end of Main Street on the site of a historic house triggered a townwide discussion about Main Street and how it should be zoned, Edkins said.
“That part of Main Street is zoned mixed-use, and basically our zoning regulations say that’s any use,” Edkins said.
The board plans to continue to discuss the issues surrounding the character of Charlestown’s Main Street and its zoning, he said.
