Rockland Special Town Meeting: Overwhelming Approval on Updated Zoning for the South Weymouth Naval Air Station

Community Update Nov. 2023

Rockland Special Town Meeting voters on Nov. 7 overwhelmingly approved updated zoning for the South Weymouth Naval Air Station, which includes land in Rockland, Abington and Weymouth.

Earlier, the updated Base rezoning was approved unanimously by the Weymouth Town Council and by a two-thirds margin at an Abington Special Town Meeting.

Zoning approval allows Base redevelopment to advance to further local and state approvals.
