The zoning board of appeals has a packed agenda on Sept. 21, including two applications from businesses on Bradford Street. The Foxberry Inn is again seeking to add a third story with six guestrooms to the hotel at 29 Bradford St. Extension, while the Provincetown Brewing Co. is seeking a special permit for outdoor entertainment in its front patio at 141 Bradford.
Both applications have drawn objections from neighbors.
Robin Reid, lawyer for the Foxberry Inn, withdrew a similar application at the ZBA meeting on April 6 after 90 minutes of discussion.
The Brewing Co.’s outdoor entertainment application is before the ZBA for the first time.
An Open-and-Close Warrant
The select board will open the town meeting warrant, add a series of articles to it, and then close it again on Friday morning, Sept. 22.
The board has already discussed 15 articles that will likely appear: seven relatively small financial transfers and eight articles on housing.
The most controversial of those are likely to be two measures that would regulate short-term rentals in town, one by prohibiting corporations from holding rental certificates and another that would limit individuals to no more than two certificates.
Petitioned articles are possible at a special town meeting, but they are uncommon. It takes 10 signatures of voters to add an article to the annual meeting warrant but 100 for a special town meeting warrant. —Paul Benson
