Public Hearing - Proposed Zoning Amendments

On March 12, 2018, beginning at 6:30 PM in the Town House, the Planning Board will hold Public Hearings on the following proposals to amend the Zoning Ordinance:

1. Zoning Simplification - The purpose of this proposed amendment is to repeal the existing residential, commercial, office, and mixed-use zoning districts and the Traditional Neighborhood Overlay Zones and replace these districts with new districts and regulations that integrate existing uses and standards into simplified residential and mixed-use districts.  The ordinance also adds a set of “Building Types and Standards” with the intent of replicating the look and feel of Peterborough.  It also revises and integrates minimum parking standards into the district standards. A new Zoning Map has been created that assigns each parcel a single zoning district, eliminating confusion for hundreds of parcels now located in two or more zoning districts. Parcels that had previously non-conforming lot sizes have been assigned to new districts so that the lots will now be conforming.  The text of this proposed amendment may be downloaded by clicking on the heading above.

2. Accessory Dwelling Unit Section 245-24.1 - The purpose of this proposed amendment is to eliminate the requirement of owner occupancy for Accessory Dwelling Units and ensure minimum parking requirements are consistent with other sections of the zoning ordinance. The text of this proposed amendment may be downloaded by clicking on the heading above.

3. Solar Energy Systems - The purpose of this proposed amendment is to add a new section that establishes permitted uses, standards, and regulatory review requirements for solar energy systems.  The text of this proposed amendment will be added to the website shortly..
