Barnstable Massachusetts, 1890 (1013 words)
Barnstable is the shire town of the county of Barnstable, and has a handsome court-house and jail at the village, together with a town-hall.
The Congregational church at West Barnstable was organized by the colonists while in England; re-established in Scituate in 1634; at Barnstable village, in 1639; and in West Barnstable in 1716.
It is said that this West Barnstable church, organized in England in 1616, is the "first independent Congregational church of that name in the world." The southern part of the territory of the town was purchased from the sachem Iyanough, or Wianno, in 1650, the year of the incorporation.
Inclusionary Zoning Case Study (562 words)
The case challenged a specific provision in the Barnstable inclusionary housing ordinance that required developers to pay a fee, to be deposited into the town's affordable housing fund, when subdividing a land parcel of less than ten acres or developing under ten residential units.
The Barnstable Superior Court determined that the nature of the ordinance was a tax, not a fee, and the town did not have the authority to collect taxes.
Barnstable first implemented an inclusionary zoning bylaw in 2001 as a part of an Affordable Housing Plan, which seeks to produce 1,000 units of affordable housing in ten years time.
