Camden Residents Zoning Change

Parents who are Camden Residents,

The school district is requesting a town ordinance change to allow the new school to be 38 feet tall. Although the height of the MET wing of the current school exceeds 40', the land is zoned for a maximum of 30'. The new building will be lower than the current one, but we need an ordinance change to allow this. The change is needed to avoid a set of stairs in the middle of the main level and lower levels.
There is a planning board meeting on this issue this Thursday, November 9, at 5pm in the Washington Street conference room and then a Selectboard meeting on November 21, at 6:30, in the same location. In early December there will be a town meeting vote.
If you have an opinion about this ordinance change, please attend any of these meetings. Thank you.
