Discussion of proposed amendment to Article 5 Section 501C of the Zoning Ordinance: Mr. Jakubiak introduced the topic of the proposed ordnance amendment to reduce the required lot width in an R-2 zone from 60 to 50 feet. He stated that the proposed amendment would remove a hurdle to infill development. Mr. Jakubiak noted that the R-2 district includes a number of lots that are less than 60 feet wide and that the amendment would allow consistency with the existing lots widths in the area.

Mr. Jakubiak recommended that this be made part of the codification of the zoning ordinance for which a public hearing could be held in conjunction with the public hearing for the Comprehensive Plan if the Commissioners schedule allows.

Mr. Jakubiak stated that the Comprehensive Plan is about ready. It is going under revisions before public release. Mr. Raffetto requested that the plan be submitted to the Town Council before the public hearing.


There were no public comments during the Public Comment period.


The meeting was adjourned at about 7:45 PM on a motion by Mr. Raffetto, seconded by Mr. Taylor, and unanimously approved.
