Hearing on technical amendments to town ordinances set for Oct. 5

The Town Council will hold a public hearing Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2016 on a series of technical amendments to the zoning, subdivision and conservation ordinances, as well organizing provisions governing stormwater into a separate ordinance.

The amendments were reviewed at workshops and at a public hearing before the Planning Board, and at three meetings of the Town Council's ordinance subcommittee which voted on Aug. 11 to recommend adoption to the full council.

"We do this every once in a while, the intent is to clarify provisions and to do updates," Town Planner Maureen O'Meara said at the Planning Board's public hearing in June.

The Oct. 5 meeting is being held on a Wednesday rather than the usual second Monday of the month to avoid the Columbus Day holiday.
