Barnstable's Pot Zone Shrinks; Props for Oak Bluffs; & More!

HYANNIS - The pot (zone) is shrinking: "The Barnstable Town Council passed a scaled-down zoning plan for medical marijuana dispensaries Thursday evening at a joint hearing with the Planning Board." [Cape Cod Times]

NANTUCKET - Fun fact: the largest number of house moves in Massachusetts take place on Nantucket. "The town is planning to overhaul its "Over the Road" house-moving permit, which is required of those looking to move a structure along public or private ways, that often causes traffic problems and can damage town infrastructure when not handled properly..." [Inquirer and Mirror]

WASHINGTON D.C./OAK BLUFFS - More fun facts: "Oak Bluffs is one of 10 communities included in a national exhibit planned to inaugurate the The National Museum of African American History and Culture, set to open on the Washington Mall in late 2015. The town, a treasured summer community among middle and upper class African Americans for more than a century, will help tell a larger, underrepresented history of black leisure, Smithsonian curators said this week."
