CLINTON — Voters will be asked to amend zoning regulations and transfer money for a sidewalk project in two ballot questions Tuesday in the municipal election.

The first question asks voters whether to allow day care businesses in the town’s commercial zone. Town Manager Pamela Violette said the owner of a building at the corner of Main and Baker streets wants to open a day care center and asked the Planning Board to change the regulations.

The board and the code enforcement officer recommend the change. If approved, a day care business would have to submit a site plan to the Planning Board for review before getting approval for development.

The second question asks voters whether to approve transferring $79,603 from an economic development special reserve fund to the town’s streetscape capital reserve fund. The money will pay for a sidewalk restoration project on Main Street and the village district.

According to Violette, the money in the special reserve fund originated from a tax increment financing account. It will be added to about $58,000 already in the streetscape reserve account.

Selectmen awarded a $33,410 bid to repair sidewalks on Main Street between Church and Spring streets this year and hope to go ahead with sidewalk replacement on Railroad Street next year, Violette said.

Polls are open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday at Town Hall, 27 Baker St.
