MINUTES OF THE REGULAR MEETING OF THE VIENNA
PLANNING BOARD HELD JANUARY 22, 2020
The meeting convened at the Town House at 7:00 PM. Regular members present were Waine Whittier, Creston Gaither, Ed Lawless, and Tim Bickford. Sue Burns was also present. Minutes of the December 11 meeting were read and accepted.
Creston and Sue outlined computer troubles they’ve had producing copies of Sue’s revised draft of the proposed setback ordinance.
The content of the ordinance was discussed. Sue suggested that it include a statement of purpose, which Waine said might include a reference to having consistent requirements throughout the town.
Definitions of structures etc. were discussed – it was agreed that these should be consistent with the Shoreland Zoning Ordinance, etc.
It was noted that the Subdivision Ordinance on the Town website is out of date. Creston will address this.
Waine suggested that we table the proposed setback ordinance for now and that we instead seek to revise the Notification of Construction Ordinance to include setback requirements and to require a site sketch. All agreed that this is a good idea.
It was voted 4 – 0 to table the proposed setback ordinance for now and to seek to revise the Notification of Construction Ordinance as outlined above when this is feasible.
The meeting adjourned at 8:10 PM.
Creston Gaither, secretary
