Subject:
Ordinance to amend the Zoning and Site Plan Review Ordinance and the Code of Ordinances to replace the SB District on Route One with new Village Center Districts.  

A public comment period will not be included with this item because a public hearing was held regarding this matter at an earlier date.

ACTION: Council action is anticipated.
Summary:
The CDC began its review work of the 2005 Route One Study five years ago at the request of the Town Council.  Subsequently the CDC was tasked with developing a plan for the transformation of the Route One business area to a village center with a focus on increased density and mixed use.  This zoning amendment is the result of 2 years of work by the CDC to develop the zoning.  It is designed to work in conjunction with the Route One South Infrastructure Plan, also developed by the Committee.

At its May 7, 2013, meeting the Planning Board, acting as the Town’s designated Municipal Reviewing Authority, held a public hearing on the proposed amendments. A memo detailing comments made at that meeting is attached.  

Please find attached a cover memo explaining the changes since the introduction, and the six components of the zoning amendment. This link will also help summarize the entire zoning and infrastructure project:  http://www.town.falmouth.me.us/Pages/FalmouthME_BComm/RouteOneFolder/Presentation_27March2013_final.pdf
