Comprehensive Plan & Zoning Ordinance Update Committee

The Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Ordinance Update Committee has been assembled to complete the following work:
 
  • Update the language and terminology of the Zoning Ordinance
  • Continue to update basic demographics in the Comprehensive Plan
  • Update the Plan for emerging issues such as climate change, aging in place and emerging business clusters
  • Provide a community drive evaluation of what we have accomplished and what we have yet to accomplish, using guidance from our key committees and boards. A special sounding board committee will be established and the evaluation will result in an update of the Comprehensive Plan
  • Review and change where appropriate, the goals and land use patterns map for the purpose of updating the future land use plan with a focus on smart growth principles
  • Update the capital investment strategy
  • Update the Zoning Ordinance based on the above strategies and future land use plan
  • Simplify the Zoning Ordinance for a more business-friendly approach.
Meetings
The Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Ordinance Update Committee meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. on the 3rd floor of Town Hall. All meetings are posted in Town Hall and on the Meeting Calendar.
