Council approves Technical Amendments package

Following a public hearing in which no comments were received, on Monday, May 9, 2022 the Town Council voted 7-0 in favor of approving the Ordinance Committee's proposed Technical Amendments.  The Ordinance Committee reviewed the package of amendments approved by the Planning Board on December 21, 2021.  A Technical Amendments package is usually a collection amendments gathered over time that are not typically considered major policy changes, but rather a correction of errors, omissions, and imprecise language which emerge through the process of applying ordinance provisions to real world situations.  However, in a December 22 Memo Town Planner Maureen O'Meara stated, "The Planning Board wants to emphasize that this amendment package goes beyond classic errors and omissions." The Memo identifies which items in the package are considered to be more substantive.

The approved Technical Amendments will go in effect on June 9, 2022.
