Planning Board Town Meetings

March 1, 2016 Planning Board RCL Notes

“Request for exemption from site review for Outdoor Pride,” as is stated in the agenda notice, was granted with the request that the applicant return one year from erecting/completing the installation. Details including size, a 2040 square foot greenhouse, and location, Wetlands Conservation and Aquifer Districts, were omitted from the agenda notice, as were relevant sections of the Land Developments Regulations (LDR) in order to achieve exempt status.  Member Keriann Roman justified the exemption from Section 405.2 and Section 201.C of the LDR stating the request constituted, in her opinion, “a minimal change to the site and the environment.”  A member of the public stated that according to Section 306. B of the Aquifer Protection District, a Conditional Use Permit is required for a “Greenhouse or horticultural enterprise”.

2.  Julie LaBranche from RPC attended the meeting to ensure that all members were on board with the scope of a new chapter being written for the Master Plan.  The chapter is now called “Coastal Hazards and Adaption” in response to concerns about the term “Climate Change.”
