The answer is blowing in the wind or at least to Town Meeting. Thats where proponents of wind power in Duxbury hope theyll be able to pass a bylaw allowing the use of wind turbines in town. Last year, the topic came before town meeting but was passed over after discussion. Members of the Alternative Energy Committee are now considering streamlining the bylaw, dropping a provision that dealt with small-scale

privately-owned turbines and focusing on larger, municipal wind facilities. The committee held a joint meeting with the Planning Board and the Zoning Board of Appeals Monday evening to gather some initial feedback. At Town Meeting we had a bylaw that probably wasnt fully vetted, said Alternative Energy Chairman Frank Duggan, adding that a last minute attempt to amend the bylaw on Town Meeting floor may have confused voters.continued on page 6

Locals spearheading effort to repeal anti-snob zoning actLocal officials are getting involved in a statewide movement to repeal the states affordable housing law known as 40B. Planning Board Chairwoman Amy MacNab was involved in a similar effort two years ago. She along with other other planning board members from around the state signed a petition to repeal the 40B law, also called the anti-snob zoning act because it allows developers to skirt local zoning regulations if a portion of units built are designated affordable.
