Project Manager - Robert Cole S:~PLAN~PB-ITEMS~IVIinutes\6.23.05 min.doc General Comments: Written explanation of each zone needed. A verbal context of the new zoning designations needed for clarity. Indicate the goal of the zoning district in the explanation. Can the number ofproposed intensity zones be further reduced or collapsed? Have any other communities used the proposed modular system? New zoning designations will be difficult to get use to. Using descriptions and nomenclature as close to that cunently used may be helpful. Should HRl-X be listed as a residential zone versus a mixed use zone? Comments ReqardinQ Ouestions asked in the Memorandum: Planning Board supports the proposed modular system Planning Board supports reorganization of the code as proposed. Section Suecific Comments: Chapter 9-4: What do we gain by creating another type of accessory dwelling unit? Chapter 9-7: Description of Open Space (Section (a) 1-6 needs more refinement. Define what makes up passive and active open spaces. Chapter 9-11: Are urban growth boundaries adequate for growth management purposes? The idea of suspending the quarterly allocation system has merit. Chapter 9-12: Some board members supported the idea of allowing garages to be converted to living area and using existing driveways for the required off-street parking without a review process. Do driveways have to be paved as required in the parking proposal? Considering removing the requirement that all lots in a PUD or site review must be fully developed before a minor amendment can be considered. 5howing existing code language along with proposed code ]anguage would helpful in understanding the amendments.
