“PLANNING & ZONING BOARD

Under the Town Charter, the Planning & Zoning Board acts in an advisory capacity to the Town Commission on questions “relating to zoning and on matters of proposals to change zoning regulations, and to report its findings and recommendations on such proposals to the Town Commission. The Board also studies existing Town plans, growth issues and investigates – for approval or disapproval – all new plats to be presented to the Commission. The Board’s five appointed members (plus two alternates) serve two-year terms. The Board meets as needed in Jarvis Hall on the third Wednesday of the month at 6:30 PM.

BOARD MEMBERS

Yann Brandt
Ben Freeny
George Hunsaker
Alfred Oldaker
Lawrence “Peanuts” Wick

ALTERNATES

BC- Resident John Oughten appointed as an alternate chose to not accept the position…too bad he would have had the summer to make an impression …due to Peanuts Wick being absent ….

Tonight the Board will chose a Chair/V Chair from among those seated… My choices ….Alfred “Buzz ” Oldaker/ Yann Brandt/Ben Freeny …

They received a huge book of the backup material early on…approx. a month ago…so this group should be well prepared and ready to address the issues at hand….

Regular Meeting of the Planning and Zoning Board – December 16, 2009
V. NEW BUSINESS

Request: (A) The Planning and Zoning Board to provide recommendations to the Town Commission to the proposed amendments to the Towns’ Code of Ordinances and the Town’s Comprehensive Plan.

Item #1: Amendments to the Town’s Comprehensive Plan to include revisions to address the Broward County Planning Council’s Provisional Certification of the Future Land use Element, the new Public School Facility Element. (Walter Keller)

BC- Walter Keller got the “gig” once again from former TM Colon…We hear Colon did RFP for someone else …and it did not work out due to a hefty bill she refused to pay… Why wouldn’t the former TM bring that to the dais?…How odd was she if this is so…. The cost for Keller in 2010..asked but not answered thus far…

His contract with the Town produced a copy of the minutes …

B AGREEMENT with Walter H Keller for Planning consultant services.

Excerpts from the 2006 agreement below with 2006 prices….

BC- see backup link below for the amendments…

Item #2: Code Amendments to 30-313 (29) General Provisions to allow swimming pools in the front setbacks. (Jeff Bowman)

BC- This one is a return …it came to P&Z  last year (prev. postt) to deal with the D’Uva variance and setbacks and pools…It was turned down by the p&Z and then not correctly represented to the Commission on the P& Z’s non-recommendation…This Comm. seemed to be in favor of pools in the front yard…Comm. Vincent cited some in his Silver Shores area…and was not opposed…Com. Clottey was also agreeable…This writer recall the Town in the past did not want fencing nor pools in front yards to preserve the site lines …Also the recent drainage study shows a big part of the remedy will be the ROW in front yards in areas such as Silver Shores…This along with the long held belief that sometime in the future sidewalks will come to all neighborhoods along with lights and trees in areas including Silver Shores would severely cut back on who would be allowed a pool…In this writer’s opinion make front yard pools and fences subject to a variance…

Item #3: Code Amendments to 6-42 regarding maintenance of sites under development. (JB)

BC- I agree with what is proposed and hope that the chain link fencing will also be subject to netting for containment of debris…Code must step up and be diligent with scheduled and recorded visits to keep the neighbors happy during construction…

Item #4: New Code Section 11-21 to address foreclosed and/or abandoned properties. (JB)

BC- I look forward to the input from the new board on this hot topic…and will hold off on commenting until after the meeting…

Item #5: Code Amendments to 12-10 to allow businesses throughout Town to extend business hours to provide a greater service and convenience to residents and visitors. (JB)

BC- Ditto!…
