Planning Board Hearing on Town Residential Zoning, Formula Stores 3/2/11

Sunday, February 6th, 2011

The Planning Board will hold a public hearing on March 2, 2011, at 7:00 pm at the Senior Center to receive public comment on proposed zoning amendments affecting houses in Residential Zones R1 and R2 and on “formula” businesses in the Central District.

The residential zone amendments would regulate house size with the intention of preserving the traditional character of the Town, as amendments for the Seashore District have already done. Any proposed large, out-of-scale house (relative to its lot size and neighborhood) would have to receive a Special Permit.

They would also allow for more affordable housing.

The fast food and formula business amendments would disallow such stores in the Central District.
