Discussion of B6 zone

The Chairman called the meeting to order at 6:30 p.m. Mr. Boswell gave an overview of the concept plan which he submitted to the Economic Development Committee for GI Auto (Blocks: 167, 178, 179

Lots: 28-32, 3, 1).  He discussed his request to rezone the property located in the B6 zone to allow retail use by-right as proposed by the Planning Board in 2007 and indicated in the current Master Plan Land Use Element.

The only differences Mr. Boswell is requesting from the 2007 Burgis memo are increases in building and impervious coverage and modification of parking requirements than what is required by the current ordinance.  In particular, Mr. Boswell is requesting a 15% building coverage versus recommendation of 13.5% permitted, 40% total impervious coverage versus recommendation of 35% permitted, and parking requirement of 1 space per 250 square feet, which was recommended in 2007, versus 1 space per 200 square feet which is required by the current ordinance.

Mr. Boswell indicates that he has a developer interested in the property, but the tenants are not confirmed as of yet and he would like some flexibility under the zoning for potential retail anchors that might be interested in locating on the property.  Mr. Boswell indicated that there is a traffic study available from the use variance for Lowes.  He indicated that a retail use would be a lower traffic generator than the other three permitted uses on the property permitted by-right by the current ordinance.

The subcommittee agreed that Mr. Burgis would further review the request and present a memo to the subcommittee and to the full Board for consideration and recommendation to the Montville governing body.  It is anticipated that the full Board would consider the request for rezoning and associated ulk parameters at the June 28, 2012 Planning Board meeting. 


There being no further business to discuss, the meeting was adjourned at 7:26 p.m

Respectfully submitted,


Meghan Hunscher, Principal Planner
