FM #989 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 989 in the series.
This session of the radio show shares the audio recording of the Economic Development Subcommittee held on Wednesday, May 3, 2023 in the Council Chambers with all 4 members participating in the Council Chambers.
Healthy discussion on the next steps for each of the outstanding remaining goals on the list:
40r was the #1 priority for MAPC, within which the specified design standards and dimensional standards (lot coverage, stories, setbacks, etc.) really need to be addressed whether we do 40r or not
Shared parking policy (maybe some incentives to entice coordination for private space)
Review sidewalk snow removal bylaw (review map put together by Brutus)
Research changes to the home occupation business bylaw (interested in but will take time to do properly)
Review the marijuana overlay district (some adjustments needed, Kenwood Circle, Amgeo on Washington St, etc.)
Review the cell phone tower overlay district and consider a 5G local permitting bylaw (maybe just research required)
GR 5 impervious coverage
Cannabis overlay district
Design stuff - Barrette contract product output
Snow removal on sidewalks (Brutus’ map)
The recording of the meeting runs just under 1 hour.
