Subject:
Adopt an amendment to the Zoning and Site Plan Review Ordinance to revise the time limits for the West Falmouth Crossing Master Plan.

ACTION: Council action is anticipated.
Summary:
This amendment proposes to revise section 3.14.8 "Master Development Plan Time Limits” relative to the West Falmouth Crossing Planned Development District.
The amendment extends the time for substantial completion of any portion of the development from ten (10) to twenty (20) years from January 26, 1998 (the date of approval of the Master Development Plan).
Without this amendment, the Town Council’s approval of the Master Development Plan expired in 2008. Currently, two lots in this project remain undeveloped. The Town recently received a project inquiry for one of these lots. The ordinance states that the Council may extend the time limits because of market conditions.
The Planning Board, acting as the Town's Municipal Reviewing Authority, held a public hearing on this amendment at its October 2, 2012 meeting.  There was no public comment at the meeting and the Board voted 5-0 to recommend approval of the amendment.
Attached are:
  • Introduction Letter from Councilor Farber, including Text of Proposed Amendment;
  • Staff memo, dated September 20, 2012, responding to the three Council questions from August 27, 2012
  • Additional information from Malone Commercial Brokers, representative of the property owner of one of the undeveloped lots (see "WFC letter 9.17.12")
  • Memo from the Community Development Dept. regarding zoning.
