If this article passes, it would prevent families from being more self sufficient by providing their own food or teaching their children about farming. I’m not saying residents should be able to run a commercial slaughterhouse in their backyards, and if someone was going to engage in a larger farming or commercial operation, there are already laws that would oversee them.
Kingston is a town that has a rich agricultural history, especially the poultry industry, at one time being the chicken capital United States sending and selling, millions of eggs and birds all over the country.
On some of the proposed zoning articles I think the public lends too much credit to the wording underneath the article that reads “recommended by the planning board”. Of course they endorse it; they drafted it and determined it’s final form. I encourage the public to make sure they read these articles fully even though some of them can be very lengthy and wordy.
We’ve already adopted an eight page town ordnance on what type of light bulbs we use. I feel this is an example of the planning board overstepping their boundaries and encroaching too much on individual rights of property owners and homeowners in the town of Kingston I believe this is an unnecessary article and I believe it does not help our benefit the town in anyway. I encourage everyone to make themselves aware and make your fellow neighbors aware of articles like this. Please vote them down during the election, the last thing we need is to continue to lose more of our property rights to unnecessary rules.
