Discussion continued at the Chilmark selectmen’s meeting this week about possible uses for a 16-acre piece of town-owned land at Peaked Hill.

The planning board presented a priority list that includes affordable/workforce housing, recreation, farming/pasture land, open land for future development, or community land for public town purposes such as solar or storage. Due to the size of the land, it is possible that it could be developed for multiple different uses.

At the meeting Tuesday, discussion focused primarily on affordable/workforce housing as a potential use. Selectmen agreed that some kind of affordable housing is desirable but said it could be difficult to find a development model that fits with the vision of the Chilmark master plan.

Possibile models include long-term leases to someone who builds their home on the land, turnkey homesite lots, rental by the town as developer, and rental by an independent developer.

Once they settle on a concept, selectmen agreed to submit an application for a Massachusetts Housing Technical Assistance Grant. The grant could provide funding for up to $100,000 with a 10 per cent town match for the development of the land.

Selectmen said discussion will continue in future meetings.

In other business, police chief Jonathan Klaren presented a draft memorandum of understanding that would regulate charter buses in Menemsha. According to the draft MOU, vans will not be able to drive beyond the Home Port, drivers will not be allowed to leave their van unattended, and will only be able to pick up or drop off passengers in areas that do not obstruct traffic flow.

Selectmen agreed on the guidelines but suggested redrafting the MOU as a set of rules and regulations. They suggested owners of the charter companies sign the document as a “proof of understanding.”

The draft rules will be discussed again at the next meeting.

The board also:

• Noted that the position of fire chief has been advertised, with applications due by July 8.

• Discussed plans to fill a sink hole by the dock in Menemsha harbor.

• Approved a plan to build a music garden as an extension of the new playground at the Chilmark School. An $11,000 grant has been secured for the project.

• Denied Jesse Burton’s proposal to launch a 23-foot commercial tour boat out of Menemsha harbor.

• Heard from town administrator Tim Carroll that the CodeRED emergency notification system will be tested during the week of June 25.
