Here’s The Scoop…Master Plan Steering Committee/P And Z Tonight…

MPSC & P & Z AT 6:30 pm…Jarvis Hall…public welcome/on Comcast  channel…78…

The announcement from the Town Manager that we have the Oriana million in the bank…should be at the top of the list…with El Mar Drive improvements…

BCbythesea…hears there just may be some stipulations contained within the designation of the money…if so…could be an eye opener!….

BUT…let’s hope the Overlay Districts…that were removed…and the height limits…definitely needing clarification do not get hijacked …and left out in the cold!…

Tonight these 2 groups are supposed to be in possession of all information requested back in Oct. from the Town…in order to see what went wrong with the districts…development and how to get this town back on track for future PLANNED development…benefiting the Town..its character…and the developers…whether private … as we have seen recently with variances and P & Z projects approved along El Mar on the beach….or corporate…with those projects stalled due to the economic times……and the clock still ticking on their site plans…undoubtedly requiring return trips to the commission…to complete them…

Case in point…. the single family home project …(previously posted ..in the board category)…from yesterday’s BOA meeting…that made it abundantly clear…according to out town Charter/ code and the state…FEMA…33 feet…is not 33 feet…and we need to understand that …in order to move ahead …we need to be flexible…..with no self serving set agendas…..
