Minutes Approved: Wed, Mar 3 - Planning Board Meeting
6:15 PM: Short Term Rentals/Bed and Breakfast Discussion - Continued discussion
The need for an update of the existing B&B bylaw to be clearer and include Short Term Rentals was again acknowledged. There is a Short Term Rental training workshop for planning board members next month presented by the FRPB, and there is interest in attending. In order to have that information on hand for continued discussion, we intend to postpone the June PB meeting to the 2nd week of June (9th).
There is also desire to find a good way to get input from interested townspeople on their thoughts and desires for possible direction. Perhaps a "suggestion box" style input.
In the meantime the board agreed to table this discussion.
6:34 PM: Review of Setbacks per Zoning Board Request - Continued discussion
Bobby will look into what is involved with the possibility of addressing the zoning overlay for the town, as a way to see if that is a possible method for addressing some of these concerns. The PB will continue this discussion at future meetings.
