One of the articles to be voted on at the April 6 annual Town Meeting proposes expanding the boundaries of the Plymouth Historic District.  Under Article 15, the area would expand to include Union Street to Barnes Lane and Lincoln Street, the west side of Lincoln Street plus 11 Lincoln St. (the Plymouth Public Schools administration building) on the east side, and Bradford Street. Together, it would add 59 properties to the historic district.

Passage requires approval by two-thirds of Town Meeting members. If it passes, the town’s Historic District Commission could prohibit demolition within the area.

This video by Independent contributor Christopher Harting provides a tour of the proposed expansion. You can also find out more – including the positions of proponents and opponents – in our Town Meeting preview.
