Citizens of Chichester,
As you may have heard in
the last couple months, weeks or even days Chichester is in the
process of amending its current zoning ordinance. The zoning
amendment will allow Chichester to govern the town better and steer
away from outdated soil maps. This will still be keeping with the
Master Plan and understanding the desire to keep the rural
characteristics of Chichester alive. There have been a lot of
questions asked and answered at the meetings and around town.
One of the big questions
that everyone has asked is how will this effect my taxes or my
current evaluation. The new zoning will not affect your taxes
or your current evaluation at all. The tax evaluation is determined
with your current lot as it sits. It is not determined on how many
house lots you could potentially have in the future or if it’s
agricultural or residential. If you are currently in a five acre
zoning and the new zoning map updates your lot to two acre zoning
your assessment doesn’t change. The only time the assessment will
change is when you decide to change the use of your lot.
I would ask for your
support on updating the town zoning. If you have any questions
please reach out to the planning board or myself to get the
We are having a public
meeting on the zoning amendments on February 4 at 6:30 in the
Grange, and I encourage all to come.
