Contribute to the Legal Appeal

Please download the Contribution Form and mail it to the address at the bottom of the form.

The citizens’ group Defend Town Plans is collecting funds to pay the lawyer fees for the appeal. While the appeal focuses on a specific case (boat-storage buildings on Hwy. B), we are really appealing a change in county policy: the decision to no longer follow town plans for A-2 rezoning.

Our best cost estimate is around $10,000 (the lawyer’s estimate was $8,000–$9,000, but we’d prefer to have a cushion in case of higher costs).

By crowd-sourcing the legal fees, everyone can chip in what they can, without too much burden for any one person. Even if you can contribute only a small amount, it would be appreciated as a sign of support. If any funds are left over, then funds will be redistributed to donors in proportion to the amount given. For example, if 10% of the funds are left over, then each contributor would receive 10% of their contribution back.
