PLANNING BUSINESS

General

1. Fogelson property rezoning

Mr. Burgis presented a series of maps from the master plan that highlighted the Fogelson property on Route 202 and access ramp from 287.  Based on his analysis of the area, he re-affirmed his and the subcommittees previous conclusion that it made sense from a planning standpoint for the property to remain residential.  He indicated that the surrounding land uses were residential in nature and that the environmental constraints on the property were at the front, necessitating that any development occur at the rear of the property.  The subcommittee agreed unanimously to keep the zoning as-is.  The subcommittee allowed Ms. Fogelson and Ms. Barnish to ask questions for clarification as to the subcommittee’s position. 

2. Streetscape memo (2006)

The subcommittee and Mr. Burgis agreed that the working ordinance from 2010 should be incorporated into the ordinance.
