Addison seeks town zoning input
ADDISON — The Addison Planning Commission is seeking input from town residents as it prepares updates to the town plan that will also help planners to make final some long-awaited changes to Addison’s zoning laws.
The commission is in the process of surveying residents on how they feel about a number of specific land-use questions and general issues about development and town priorities, and members are hoping for as broad a response as possible.
Town Clerk Marilla Webb said last week response to what is intended to be a 10-minute survey has been good so far, and more would be welcome before the survey’s April 10 deadline.
Paper copies are available at the town’ clerk’s office, and completed surveys may be left there. An online version of the survey is available through the Addison County Regional Planning Commission’s website at http://acrpc/communities/addison.
Initial questions on the anonymous survey explore survey-takers’ general connection to and history in Addison. The next sections ask general questions about what survey-takers appreciate about Addison and what changes they might like to see.
Survey-takers are also asked to rank quality-of-life issues in Addison, answer questions about Addison’s rural character and business climate, weigh in on the specific issue of lot size in town’s largest residential zoning district, and offer opinions on siting solar arrays.
Planners, who are working with the help of the regional planning commission and a municipal planning grant, hope to have work complete on the plan and on updated zoning regulations by the end of the year.
According to the commission’s February meeting minutes, “We will continue to brainstorm and present our ideas, suggestions and inform the general public for the presentation of the Town Plan, then will proceed updating the Zoning Regulations so they mirror each other.”
