Thankfully, there were an odd number of people at last night's Special Town Meeting; otherwise, an article proposing the town adopt a "Stretch Energy Code" could have resulted in a tie.

If Scarano is so anti-government intervention for builders, how come he's such a "40B guy."

Given his track record with the Town, I wouldn't be listening to "anything" he had to say....moderator should have called him on his "time" at the mike.... blah, blah, blah multiple times. Why doesn't he fix his OWN mess he's left on Lee St. after selling the townspeople a bill of goods that year to secure the rezoning on that property so he could build his condos. IMO, this guy is bad news no matter how you look at it.

Let's get rid of that part of the building code that requires smoke alarms. It's an infringement on the builders' rights of free choice. I mean, we're all in favor of not having people die from smoke inhalation, but it's just wrong to shove it down the builders' throats like that.
Let's get rid of the parts of the building code that require insulation, too. in the words of Robert Scarano, "It is a great idea to increase energy efficiency and save money. What I'm opposed to is you are coerced to save money. You are forced to make improvements according to someone else's design. This will crush growth because it will be easier to build elsewhere."
