2. Lowell High Project
This proposed zoning amendment was a result of an Economic Development/Downtown
Subcommittee meeting. We believe that the amendment, as proposed, will support existing and
aspiring small entrepreneurs in the digital marketplace. We are seeing an increase in our local
economy for the need to operate businesses from residential kitchens, offices, and garages.
However, our zoning code is restrictive for small entrepreneurs who operate internet based
businesses. We believe this minor change to the zoning code will increase economic development
opportunities for small entrepreneurs and will not negatively impact our residential neighborhoods.

Nice to see a LHS OPM Update – however, it would also be nice to see more photographs and video from Phase 1. I also hope the public could get a tour in the near future, or at a minimum, get the Minutes from the May 5 School Building Committee Meeting.
Interesting NYT article about the growing “mis-housed” population – i.e. people stuck in homes either too large or too small for their needs. I can see this in my own neighborhood. Without adequate housing stock, I trust this situation will get worse.
