Woodside may revisit ballot measure on farmers' market

There is still a chance for a November 2013 ballot measure asking Woodside voters whether to amend zoning rules to allow a farmers' market in a parking lot downtown, where parking is scarce.

The market is temporarily being held on Sundays at Woodside Elementary School. The public parking lot between Town Hall and the Woodside Community Museum is the location under consideration for a farmers' market.

The ballot measure was rejected by a Town Council majority on May 28, citing bad timing. Councilman Dave Burow, who voted with the majority, asked the town attorney how to revisit the question.

The answer: any member of that majority may move to reconsider, and the council would vote on that motion. The council meets Tuesday, June 25.
