Community uproar about the proposed low-income senior housing project.

Proposed-conditions-plan-aerial-exhibit-Beals-and-Thomas-Inc.
Selectmen Earl Johnson seemed to be surprised about the turnout and resistance of concerned residents at the March 9th public hearing of the Zoning Board of Appeals. HAP’s request for 16 exemptions of the zoning bylaws was heard by the ZBA and residents recognized the dim-witted nature of Earl Johnson’s idea to jam the proposed structure into the tight spot right next to the senior citizens center.
Towards the end of the hearing, Johnson even insinuated that he believed that HAP was not required to obey the town’s zoning bylaws.
The Holland Blog is offering its readers the complete audio recording of the hearing during which HAP Inc. presented its preliminary plans for the $5,280,000.00 senior low income housing project, read more»

Former Attorney General Thomas F. Reilly scolded Holland selectboard for by-law change restricting farm activities.

Demonstration-of-a-novelty,-the-first-steam-powered-saw.
A lot of the taxpayer’s money is spent in an attempt to prove what chairman of the Board of Selectman James Wettlaufer can’t let go of; that James LaMountain after all is just a farmer.

A letter mailed from the Attorney General’s Office sheds new light on the controversy, the former Attorney General scolded town officials for their proposed by-laws which are “inconsistent with State Law,” if necessary special permits would be denied to applicants!

What's up with that steam powered saw?

What else does the letter from the GA’s office say?
