SPECIAL CALLED MEETING

OF THE PLANNING COMMISSION

FOR REVISION OF THE ZONING ORDINANCE

JULY 23, 1998

TOWN HALL

 

The meeting was called to order by Chairman Rob Pease at 6:45 with the following Planning Commission members present: Rob Pease, Orville Norton, Evelyn Bennett, Larry Felts, Frank Wilson, and Joe Rositano. Other persons attending were Jim Finley, Yvonne McCurley, Mike Wood, and Phil Walker.

 

Minutes from the July 9th meeting were handed out to members present but it was decided to wait until regular meeting to approve them since there was not sufficient time before hand to look them over.

 

The following revisions were made to the Zoning Ordinance:

 

Regarding the 5.2.1 Chart on p. 39, there was much discussion on whether to permit auction houses (with conditions) in the Village Zone. Mike Wood will research the issue regarding auction houses and come up with some appropriate conditions in which to regulate their approval. Parking was of great concern to many members.

 

After 35 minutes of debate on accessory residential outbuildings, the members decided to defer any changes to 4.1.6 at this time.

 

Under the chart on p. 31, leave in the first two sentences. Add “750 sq. ft.” and strike “an FAR of .2”

 

On p. 39 there will be an asterisk (*) added beside government/civic. At the bottom of the page the asterisk (*) will be explained “to be determined by Planning Commission based on proposed function/use.”

 

Rob Pease’s handout on Open space overlay was discussed until 8:25 with no decision rendered.

 

Base Zoning versus Overly Option was discussed at length but no decision was made.

 

The meeting adjourned at 9:00 p.m.

 

These minutes were submitted by Yvonne McCurley.
