Ordinance Review Committee Minutes - May 18, 2017

There was not a quorum so no business was conducted. Susan and Dodi briefly discussed the resignation of Marianne Archard, the recent repeal of the Building Ordinance and reinstatement of the Notification of Construction, the possible enlargement of the committee, and the suspension of committee meetings through the summer until the third Thursday in September or October 2017 so the Board of Selectmen can recruit and appoint additional members.

The meeting ended at 7 pm.

Ordinance Review Committee Minutes - November 17, 2016

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.
