Approach Revised for the Downtown Commercial Zoning Proposal

If you thought the proposal to revise the downtown commercial zoning district was confusing, you were not alone. The Dept. of Planning and Community Development has incorporated the feedback and revised their proposal to split it up into three parts. The first part will be scheduled for discussion at the Town Council meeting on Weds, Dec 15. The cover memo outlining the changes is addressed to Jeff Nutting and reads in part:
After a recent staff meeting with you (Jeff Nutting)  on November 23rd a three step approach was developed which we wish to pursue that will simplify the zoning bylaw amendment process and hopefully eliminate confusion:
1. Amend the Town’s Zoning Bylaw to include a new Downtown Commercial Zoning District;
2. Amend the Zoning Bylaw as it relates to the remainder of the Commercial I Zoning District; and
3. Amend the Town’s Sign Bylaw (185-20. Signs).

For your reading pleasure, the full memo and supporting documents are attached:
