Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

The Town Charter requires that no rezoning of land shall be effective unless the rezoning is approved by Town voters. Earlier this year, the Legislature passed a state law that prohibits the Town from having a referendum on any rezoning. This Charter amendment makes the Charter consistent with state law by providing that a referendum may only be required if the Town Commission certifies that holding a referendum is not prohibited by state law.[3]
