With a small, mostly sup-portive group attending theDuxbury Local Historic Dis-trict Study Committee pub-lic forum Monday night, theconversation focused not onwhether establishing a historicdistrict was a good idea but onhow the public could be betterinformed of the proposal.The forum, held Monday,Nov. 22 at the Senior Center,drew less than a dozen people,including the seven-memberstudy committee.The Board of Select-men appointed members tothe study committee in May2009 with a goal of determin-ing whether citizens would beinterested in having historicdistricts. A historic district is aseparate non-zoning section of the town bylaws.Now, in their proposalfor March Town Meeting, theLocal Historic District StudyCommittee is looking to es-tablish three historic districts:the Winsor Local Historic Dis-

The mid and southeastern Pacific Ocean is presently in a La-Ninaphase where the sea surface temperatures are cooler than normal.Through a variety of influences, this has a significant effect on NorthAmerican weather including a greater variation of temperatures andmore stormy, unsettled conditions in the upper Mid-West and NewEngland states.– Wayne Heward
