A tax on recreational marijuana sales and a nonbinding resolution to make the Vineyard 100 per cent renewable by 2040 are among the articles on the warrant when West Tisbury voters return to Oak Bluffs Tuesday afternoon for a special town meeting at the Trinity Park Tabernacle.

The meeting begins at 4 p.m.; the quorum requirement has been reduced to 30. There are 30 warrant articles that were postponed from the annual town meeting, held at the Tabernacle in June.

West Tisbury will be the first town to vote on the climate action resolution which comes before every Island town this fall and next spring.

Backed by the Vineyard Sustainable Energy Committee, the article asks towns to reduce and ultimately eliminate their reliance on fossil fuels and move to 100 per cent renewable electricity by 2040.

A second nonbinding resolution sponsored by the Vineyard Conservation Society calls for the voluntary elimination of polystyrene, a widely used but often non-recyclable form of plastic that can leach toxic chemicals into food.

The proposed marijuana tax comes as the town prepares to host the Island’s first approved medical and future planned recreational marijuana sales facility. Businessman Geoff Rose, a principal with Patient Centric, has secured state and local approvals for his medical grow facility and retail store in the Middletown business district. Mr. Rose is also planning recreational sales as well, pending state approvals. If approved by voters, the sales tax would not apply to medical marijuana.

Voters Tuesday will also take up an array of routine expenditures, including facilities maintenance, wage adjustments for town positions and appropriations from community preservation funds, as well as requests for a $19,000 blinking speed radar sign and $20,000 to study the feasibility of renovating Howes House.

To be located in the school zone on the north side of Old County Road, the radar speed sign would match one previously installed on the south side of the road, town administrator Jennifer Rand said.

“There was an accident which caused one of the [original] speed signs to be replaced with the blinking speed radar sign,” she said. “Going in the other direction, there is not a matching sign.”

At the weekly selectmen’s meeting Wednesday, Ms. Rand said any voter needing transportation to the meeting can call her at the town hall (the number is 508-696-0102).

Voters will not be permitted to park at Sunset Lake as they did in June, Ms. Rand said, but street and bulkhead parking will be available. And voters are advised to dress for the cooler weather.

“Bring a jacket, perhaps a hat,” Ms. Rand said.
