Marblehead residents weigh in on ADU proposal

Marblehead Planning Board members picked up quite a few ideas for possible incorporation in a working zoning bylaw proposal that they are crafting for Town Meeting’s consideration in May. The zoning bylaw would aim to regulate what’s called accessory dwelling units - both their use and construction in Marblehead. ADUs are small living quarters on the same property as single-family homes - and often referred to as "in-law apartments." “They can be created in a house, attached to a house, or detached from a house,” said the Planning Board’s chairman, Robert Schaeffner, on Tuesday. “All of them are intended to keep the feeling of a single-family residence always.” Many communities, like Salem and Swampscott, have frame their ADU policies as one way to mitigate the Greater Bos...

Marblehead Chamber of Commerce celebrates ‘great leadership and service’

Marblehead Chamber of Commerce celebrated "great leadership and service" during its 70th annual meeting on Tuesday in the Corinthian Yacht Club's banquet room with its draw-dropping views of Marblehead's skyline serving as the evening’s backdrop. The state of the local chamber, the nonprofit's board members report, is sound and on solid footing after a rocky two years plagued by a pandemic. "Marblehead is a special place," Katherine Koch, whom the nonprofit hired nearly a year ago, told members. "These past few years have presented a number of challenges, but the resilience of our community and the partnership between our businesses and organizations have stayed strong. It's been a pleasure helping our town get back to enjoying events and activities." The Marblehead Chambe...

During volatile times, Marblehead AAA bond rating keeps borrowing costs down

Interest rates are rising in increments of 0.75 percent. The inflation rate is at 8.3 percent. Labor and supply chain issues persist. It's a volatile period to invest, yet these are also the times when municipalities with good bond ratings can save taxpayers money. The town's AAA bond rating, the highest achievable, did just that when the Marblehead Select Board recently issued $12.3 million in bonds, representing a little more than half of the Proposition 2 1/2 debt-exclusion override that voters approved in June. "The town approved a little over $24 million in capital projects [under Question 1]," said Michael Carriette, interim finance director and treasurer/collector. "Based on the timeline of capital projects, we went out to bid for $13 million." In volatile times, municip...
