Discussion of Rt.
202/Housing – Master Plan studies
The subcommittee reviewed
the Rt. 202 corridor map and the parcels east of Twaits Road. It was suggested that the OB zoning be
considered parallel to Rt. 202 to the deepest current OB
zone line should extend across the remaining R27 lot in rear.
The members discussed
preparing an overlay arrangement for the area near the existing junkyard.
The I2 properties near
Sea Breeze on Rt. 202 discussed. Mixed
zoning exists in this area. One of the
lots is vacant and is in the OB zone. Mr. Burgis was asked to look at creating one
single zone designation (south side of 202) for all of these properties making
sure to look at all of the existing uses so area becomes more cohesive.
Members wanted to make
sure when developing the master plan, Mr. Burgis develops design themes and
contextual building designs in each of the areas along Rt. 202.
Mr. Burgis is

Area west of 287 is being
looked at for consistency in design themes:

this area. Mr. Burgis is continuing this
Next master plan
tentatively scheduled for March 23rd at 8AM. To be confirmed.
