 Many of the proposed amendments consist of cross-referencing other portions of existing code, eliminating conflicts, clarifying intentions, modifying wording to reflect the new Runoff Management Plan requirements adopted late last year, and modifying Typical Sections to reflect the previously adopted Space Allocations for Utilities. There are however a few new concepts and these are listed below:

  1. Adding “Reception Facility” as a specific use;
  2. Adding a provision to allow “Secondary Dwelling Units” with certain parameters;
  3. Amending Driveway Access Regulations to allow administrative variances based upon engineering justification and to better reflect the policies being followed for new developments; and
  4. Expanding the Administrative Review process to allow expedited reviews for commonly approved variance requests.
