Letter: Support urged for effort to protect

(Continued)

Include the whole parcel in the Overlay District, even if only part of the parcel is in the watershed.

Allow increases in impervious surfaces that do not exceed 15 percent of the lot size or 2,500 square feet, whichever is greater, to promote resupply of the groundwater.

The updated ordinance has been reviewed, amended and voted upon by an ad hoc committee, and presented by Ward 5 Councilor Donald Martin to the Beverly City Council for approval. A joint public hearing was held Sept. 4 with the City Council and the Planning Board and was held over until Oct. 15. That public hearing was again held over until next week.

The hearing will be held Monday, Nov. 19, at 7 p.m. in the Beverly City Council chambers at City Hall.

We hope that as many people as possible will attend this hearing regarding this critical public health issue — protection of our drinking water supply!
