Chichester Town Library News


This week is a break for school kids.  Bring them to the library to find a great book to read, puzzles to work, a movie to watch, etc.  Unless there is a weather event, the library will be following its normal hours.


If you have a child who is interested in knitting, today is a great day to bring them to the library.  The Knitting Circle will be meeting this afternoon (Wednesday) at 3:30 p.m. and they can get help and encouragement from experts.


There will be no Preschool Story and Craft Hour tomorrow.


Monday, March 5th, the Down Cellar Poets group will be meeting at 7 p.m., facilitated by Jimmy Pappas.



Gail Laker-Phelps of the Chichester Photo Group presented Evelyn Pike, Chichester Town Clerk, with a check for the Chichester Food Pantry. $735 was raised from the sale of the 2018 calendar Chichester: Then and Now, created by the group in collaboration with the Chichester Historical Society. Special appreciation to the Chichester Town Library for logistical support, and to Historical Society members for sharing their knowledge and resources. Photo Group members worked for two years to research, select, and prepare the calendar with Barbara Sinclair Pappas serving as layout designer.



Letter To The Editor


A Choice for Voters:

Allow More Flags to be exempt from meeting Chichesterís Outdoor Lighting ordinance or not.


On Tuesday, March 13th, Chichester voters will be given a  Zoning Ballot with four Amendments to consider. Amendment No. 1 and Amendment No. 4 on this ballot are both regarding the Outdoor Lighting ordinance.


Voting yes on  Amendment No. 1  as proposed by the Planning Board,  will  allow more flags in the commercial district to be exempt from meeting any of the current Outdoor Lighting regulations regarding light trespass, glare and sky glow.   


Voting yes on Amendment No. 4 as submitted by citizens petition will not allow additional flags in the commercial district to be exempt from meeting the current Outdoor Lighting regulations regarding light trespass, glare and  sky glow.    With this option, flags may, of course, be lit, but they must meet the current regulations.  With the availability of fixtures providing downward lighting of flags, businesses can consider and choose those options.


The technology is available to meet both commercial advertising needs and continue to preserve Chichesterís rural character and night sky.


I hope you will  vote yes on Amendment No. 4 .
