The zoning commission has recommended that the Planning Board should review new regulations establishing a process for Site Plan Review because the zoning regulations give site plan review responsibilities to the Planning Board. The Planning Board will begin review of the first draft on February 19th, 2013 at 6:00pm.
GROWTH POLICY UPDATE
The Planning Board has held a public hearing and completed review of the Subdivision Regulations to bring it into compliance with changes in State code and jurisdictional changes with the County. The draft changes have been forwarded to the City Council for action.
The Planning Board is going to begin a major update to the Growth Policy. The current policy was adopted as a City-County Growth Policy and the County has adopted a separate Growth Policy since. Also when the plan was written, 2010 census information was not available. The initial meeting date was scheduled for January 15, 2013. Another meeting is set for February 19, 2013. The Planning Board will start review of the revised introduction and a population chapter.
