On 5 January 2015, the Town Council passed Ordinance 2014-05, which establishes a 45-day moratorium on issuance of project permits. The moratorium is in effect for all project permits from 6 January 2015 until 16 February 2015. A copy of the ordinance is available at Town Hall. The ordinance can also be read here. Property owners who need to make emergency repairs for which a permit would typically be required should contact the Mayor or the President of the Planning Commission for assistance.
The Council is preparing to move forward with most of the proposed amendments as revised by Council and by Planning. The proposed changes to the zoning ordinance – Part 13 of our Town ordinances – trigger changes elsewhere in our ordinances, particularly in Part 17 - Building and Housing Code. All proposed changes have been significantly revised in response to the workshops, to public comments received, and earlier legal reviews. The current versions are now under further legal review.
