SOUTH HERO PLANNING COMMISSION September 16, 2020
Members Attending: Doug Patterson, Chair; Sandy Gregg, Vice-Chair; Michele Gammal; Jonathan Shaw.
Public Attending: Martha Taylor-Varney, ZA.
6PM – Doug Patterson called the meeting to order.
Changes to the Agenda
There were none.
Continue to Discuss Mobile Vendor Ordinance and Review Draft Changes
- Patterson presented an updated draft of the ordinance. Food trucks will be limited to sites that have been previously approved as Accessory Uses – Commercial, as outlined in the Development Regulations. Questions from the Commission members included if there should be site plan review plus a license or a license only? The vendor will be the accessory use and the property owner would need to apply for site plan review and would be responsible for this review. Additional discussion included exemptions (how to define a “lemonade stand”), enforcement (the SB will appoint), and deleting waiver fees or civil penalties. Doug will make additional edits of the document for the next meeting.
- Shaw moved to accept the minutes from September 2, 2020; S. Gregg second. All in favor.
- The Commission will ask the Selectboard to approve a minor addition to the Development Regulations. Section 305.A.1, allowing for a waiver from the setback within the Village and Shoreland Zoning Districts. In reference to the Shoreland District, the proposal is to add the words “…on non-conforming lots.” Since there is no minimum lot size in the Village Districts, they propose to eliminate “Village Districts” from 305.A.1.
- Gregg asked about the benefits of having a Town Administrator. Is this a Planning Commission issue or Selectboard?
The next meeting will be October 7.
7:18PM – S. Gregg moved to adjourn; J. Shaw second. All in favor.
