Not sure why it didn't work but here is the link as it appeared today:
And here is the text of the paragraphs pertinant to launching in Gilford:
"The last proposed petition article would have effectively not allowed public boat launching. The purpose of the article was to "protect and preserve existing residential shorefront neighborhoods from excessive traffic, noise and over concentration of commercial uses on a shorefront lot."
This article failed by a landslide of a vote of 1,020 'no' votes to 275 'yes' votes. The article was proposing that boat-launching ramps and related parking and storage facilities be open to the public, whether as a principal or accessory use, to be prohibited within 1,500 feet of a property that is residentially developed.
