Article I Investigation of Complaints
[Adopted 4-3-2006 ATM by Art. 8]
Editor's Note: This Article also superseded former Art. I, Investigation of Complaints, derived from Ch. 2, Sec. 7, of the 1992 Town of Abington Bylaws; amended by Art. 31 of 1996 ATM.
Upon the complaint of an abutter, the Selectmen shall investigate the use of adjoining land, which although within the allowed use under the Zoning Bylaws (Ch. 175) or Health Regulations is alleged to be conducted in such a manner that it unnecessarily or unreasonably interferes with the use or quiet enjoyment of the complainant's land.
If the Selectmen, after such investigation, deem it necessary, they may order a hearing, if as a result of such hearing they find the complaint justified they shall order such corrections in the use of such land as they deem necessary.
Failure of compliance with an order of the Selectmen under this section shall constitute an offense under these Bylaws.
