PUBLIC HEARING HELD
As advertised, a public hearing was held to consider the proposed changes in ordinance
for three different items. The recombination of platted lots pertains to when an owner
wishes to add a second lot to his home site, for instance, or when neighbors buy the lot
between them and divide it in half. It is proposed that such a transaction be presented
to the Town Clerk for signature and that it be recorded in the Registry of Deeds. No
comments from the floor.
The proposed change in the zoning ordinance to allow use of the land off Pine Knoll
Boulevard for the establishment of a wildlife rehabilitation center and the changing of the
ordinance restricting animals to allow wild animals to be treated there also elicited no
comment from the floor. The background of the project was outlined by the Mayor and
Stephanie Goetzinger gave a report of OWLS activity to date.
Consideration of the model zoning ordinance was a different story. The proposal to
change MF-2 [multi-family-2] to allow 5 stories instead of the present 3 met with con
siderable opposition. It became obvious that more study had to go into the adoption of
this "simplification" which does, indeed, bring about substantive changes. Mayor Hanan
said that it would be presented for hearing again once some of these matters are
The hearing was followed by the regular monthly meeting of the Town Board.
Commissioner Johnson proposed a budget amendment to cover the cost of upgrading the
computer system, the purchase of needed office furniture, and a defibrillator for the
Rescue Sguad. This was passed.
Commissioner Roderick said that mosquito spraying is winding down for the season. Also,
the Town Hall improvement project has been completed.
