Rockport Select Board should should not allow non-qualifying petition to circumvent original vote
On February 8, the Rockport Select Board voted 4-1 to table the draft short term rental ordinance and not place it on the June 2021 ballot. Days later, 34 residents signed a petition seeking to reverse the Select Board's vote. It did not meet the requirements for a citizens’ petition.
Then the Select Board member who opposed the original vote, proposed placing a nonbinding vote on STR regulation on the June ballot instead.
The Select Board should vote against this proposal at its March 8 meeting. It should not allow a non-qualifying petition to circumvent its original vote, which would set a bad precedent. It also would create more upset and division during the pandemic, a consequence which the original vote was intended to avoid.
