Zoning laws keep Addison officials busy
ADDISON — Addison planners continued to make headway in their major effort to update the town’s zoning laws. They hope to have a finished draft for a public hearing by November, according to September minutes.
In September issues the planning commission looked into were whether to retain the 12-room maximum currently allowed for town bed-and-breakfasts, and “possible regulations for (1) acre lots” along Routes 22A and 17 West “for businesses and residential development.” According to meeting minutes, planners “may decide to change it to a 2-acre” minimum.
Planners in September and the selectboard in October both discussed the town’s website. Planners in September said they would meet with webmaster Lisa Rowell in October, and that they wanted to “build a better communication system with Lisa and the website.”
Oct. 9 selectboard minutes indicated the board had heard from planning chairman Frank Galgano that he hoped the board would give Rowell permission to meet with the commission, and the selectboard said any concerns regarding the website “should go through the selectboard.”
In October, the selectboard also discussed a meeting of board member Joy Pouliot and road foreman Bryan Nolan with the Tri-Town Water board to discuss maintenance of Tri-Town Road. In September, Nolan told the selectboard Addison is “spending more money than the town is receiving” from the water board to maintain the road. In October, Nolan pegged the cost at about $3,600 a year.
The selectboard agreed to maintain the road for another year for $3,000, except for a “paved apron portion,” which according to Oct. 9 minutes “needs attention.” The most recent agreement between Addison and the Tri-Town board was for three years.
On Aug. 14, Nolan told the selectboard that a recent theft of about 10 signs and posts cost the town roughly $700. At that meeting, the board also asked the Addison County Sheriff’s Department to increase patrols on Lake Street during commuting hours.
