Planning Commission Meeting Summary - November 5

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

The Planning Commission met on Tuesday November 5.

Chris Sargent, the PC's consultant for the Commercial District project, led a discussion on future zoning changes for the CD. This is the last phase with Chris of the CD project. The development of zoning is in the early stages and the Chris presented what he had heard from the CD Advisory Committee when he met with them in October. He also summarized what was agreed upon through the Master Planning process related to zoning as well as discussed preferred zoning approaches, including a possible approach like Westford uses.

The Planning Commission also discussed the importance of implementing the other action steps from the Town Plan. There was further discussion related to the different parties responsible for moving forward with the next steps; an acknowledgement that the Selectboard and CD property owners are key players in those next steps. More discussion will need to follow soon.

The PC also discussed the importance of implementing the Town Plan tasks. They begin looking at the tasks for the Planning Commission and also talked about the items that they have heard from the public that they think are important that might not show up on the Town Plan list. They will continue this discussion at their next meeting.
They also discussed implementing an Official Map South Burlington and Hinesburg both have official maps and have found them to be very useful. They are going to possibly plan a field trip to these towns to learn more.

Minutes and the MMCTV video of the meeting will be posted on this website when available.
