Public Comment:

Councilman Bixby mentioned the Board had received a letter from the Zoning Board recommending changing the three (3) acre restriction which to build on. The Board agreed.  Councilman Watson explained why it originally part of the zoning code to begin with and this was the final part to be completed before the updated Zoning Code was to be changed. Chuck Monsees a member of the Zoning Board asked if there was a Farm and Protection Plan in place. There is not one therefore the Planning Board would need to prepare one.  Mr. Monsees concern was the length of time it will take to develop a plan to include the three acre restriction change.
