The draft warrant articles proposing the adoption of two amendments to the Town of Carroll Zoning Ordinance was accepted by the Planning Board at the Public Hearing held on Thursday, January 2nd, 2020 at 7:00 PM.

Chairman Foti suggested the review of the Master Plan should be a goal of the Planning Board in 2020. Beginning with the February 6th meeting, he proposed reviewing the first two sections of the Plan (The People and The Land). As the Board goes through its review, what does it mean for the Planning Board in terms of decisions that the Board makes and are there areas where the content needs to be updated or refreshed? It will also allow the Board to become more closely acquainted with the Plan. After discussion, Board members were asked to review the first section (People, pages 1-16) of the Plan in preparation for discussion at the February 6th meeting. As a process for review, Chairman Foti suggested working on the review for the first couple of months of 2020. If there are any action items resulting from the review, work on them throughout the rest of the year. John Gardiner asked if a Public Hearing needed to be scheduled. Chairman Foti said if changes are needed, then a Public Hearing would be necessary. As the process moves forward, Bonnie Moroney suggested labeling it as “follow-up” on the agenda. Her experience has been that it helps to keep track of the progress of the review while it’s being worked on, especially with items that are being researched.

The Secretary will make sure all Board members have a copy of the Master Plan.

With no further business, Bonnie Moroney made a motion to adjourn the meeting. Donna Foster seconded the motion. The motion passed unanimously. The meeting ended at 7:35 p.m.
