Update 9/01/2015:


The Board of Selectman decided not to allow an amendment to Indianhead/Churchill's amplified music permit. There will be no Karaoke on Friday or Sunday of Labor Day weekend, and amplified music is only allowed between 6-8pm on Saturday.

We will have another opportunity to discuss this issue with the Board of Selectman in the spring, when Churchill applies to renew Indianhead's amplified music permit.

Update 8/30/2015:

Indianhead Realty applied for an amendment to the campground's permit for amplified music for the weekend of Labor Day, 2015. This is a request for a one-time change to their allowed hours of amplified music. The request was to allow two days, Friday 9/4 and Saturday 9/5, during the hours of 6-8pm and 7-10pm respectively.

New Subdivision Plans & Civil Case Against Plymouth by Churchill

Indianhead Realty, Inc./Richard Churchill Has submitted a new, alternate plan for the subdivision of parcel 061-000-006A-001 into 4 lots. See the preliminary plans submitted to the town of Plymouth.

In addition, following the Town of Plymouth ZBA 2014 decision against their earlier plan for campground expansion + sand & gravel excavation, Indianhead Realty, Inc./Richard Churchill has filed two (2) civil cases in the Massachusetts Land Court, requesting an overturn of the ZBA decision, and another challenge as a procedural measure to their case.

Good News! Plymouth is proposing changes to bylaws to more tightly control the extraction of sand and gravel in residential zones. Unfortunately, proposed changes are in a redesign phase, and Indianhead Realty is likely to be exempt due to preliminary and pre-existing applications.
