What Would You Ban in Natick?

A number of communities have deep-sixed some interesting items and activities over the past year, but should Natick join the banning bandwagon?



Concord’s so-called bottle ban became a bylaw earlier this week, Brookline recently banned plastic bags and Styrofoam cups, and Arlington’s Town Meeting this fall upheld a seasonal leaf blower ban. Meanwhile, home-cooked foods have been forced out of many schools, an ostensible attempt to protect against allergies and childhood obesity.

Natick hasn’t exactly hopped on this banning bandwagon, but should it?

Is there an activity or item you would want to see banned out of environmental, health or quality-of-life concerns? Let us know in the comments section below.

I would like to ban the sale of all guns!! How do we have 3 gun shops in Natick and no one got the chance to vote against them?

Wendy, firearms sales are a retail operation not separately regulated in Natick's zoning bylaws. Town Meeting could vote to restrict the location of future firearms sales but that would not affect current stores. Glad to discuss this if you wish at 508 654-3330. Josh Ostroff

Speeders! People go 50 at least by my house everyday. It is dangerous.
