Expand the I-B Business Zone
The proposal would change the zoning of a 4.15-acre parcel within the Conservation Area identified as the excluded property from R-OS Recreation and Open Space to I-B Island Business Zone.


Delete the $1000 fee for proposing a zoning change
The proposed amendment would strike all of the text in Article 9 which requires a $1000 application fee for requesting zoning changes.  This fee is specified in Article 8.  Article 9 will be marked as ‘Reserved’.

The proposal would make several changes to the cluster development authority passed at last year’s Town Meeting. 


Driveway Standards
The proposal revises the design and construction standards for driveways required for building permits.
