Subject:
Public hearing for a zoning amendment for changes to Section 6 regarding nonconforming structures.

A public comment period will be included with this item. (5 minutes per person)

ACTION: Schedule order
Summary:
Code Enforcement Officer Justin Brown recommends amending Section 6 to allow detached accessory structures to be treated identical to attached accessory structures.  The current ordinance allows attached structures when a lot or structure is nonconforming but does not allow a detached structure.  It is also suggested that tear down/rebuilds of structures should be treated the same as expansions and enlargements.

On April 2, 2013, the Planning Board, in their capacity as the Town's designated Municipal Reviewing Authority, held a public hearing on the amendment.  A memo from Senior Planner Ethan Croce detailing the results of that meeting are attached.

Please find attached a brief overview of the amendment and the draft amendment language.
