The meeting focused largely on the draft ordinance revisions establishing consistent road setbacks in the Building, Shoreland Zoning and Subdivision ordinances. Much of the discussion pertained to the 60-foot setback from public roads and the purpose of the setback. Three of the PB members expressed concern that it was excessive, limiting building from too large an area of a lot. VORC members pointed out that on 4- rod (66 ' right-of-way) roads, a shorter 40- foot setback could result in buildings located only seven feet from the edge of the r-o-w. It was finally agreed to set the road setback distance at 50 feet, as currently required in the Subdivision Ordinance. It was also agreed to add proposed language addressing lots with both water and road frontage and setback requirements.
Discussion also covered considering the appropriate fees for building permits for temporary buildings as well as changes to the Subdivision Ordinance regarding mobile home parks.
