  • P&Z OKs Residential Component At Commercial Complexes

    Following a June 5 public hearing, Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) members approved revised zoning regulations which, in effect, would greatly increase the amount of residential apartment space that could be included as a second-story use in new commercial buildings that include uses such as stores and offices on the first story.

    George Benson, town director of planning and land use, said the revised zoning regulations would affect new development in the B-1 and B-2 (Business) zones.

  • P&Z Approves Moratorium On Medical Marijuana Applications

    Following a June 5 public hearing, the Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) created the regulatory mechanism known as a “moratorium,” which allows the land use agency to suspend the filing of applications on certain specific types of land uses, if deemed necessary.

    After that action, the P&Z then voted to enact such a one-year moratorium on applications for the local growing and/or dispensing of “medical marijuana.”
