Discussion about the possibility of broadening retail use in the RB (Residential B) District, specifically in the Falmouth Corner area and order to authorize town staff to develop ordinance amendment language.
Property owners at 234 Middle Road (Falmouth Corner) are concerned that the limitations of zoning are affecting the ability to sell/use the property that has been historically commercial. They would like the Council to amend zoning to expand the list of permitted uses in the Residential B zones. A list of current permitted uses and the definition of "Neighborhood Convenience/Variety Stores" is attached/linked to this page. Also attached/linked is the overview of the Falmouth Corners Study of 2005 and the excerpt on land use recommendations regarding zoning amendments.
