Planning Board will hear zoning proposals

Continue reading below

The Planning Board will hold a public hearing this week to discuss proposed changes to town zoning laws. One of the most significant changes could include allowing provisions for permitting and regulating ground-mounted solar photovoltaic arrays. Another deals with changing the boundaries of the business and light industrial district, the Byfield village business district, and the commercial highway district at Pearson Plaza on Central Street to include entire parcels at their respective outer boundaries, and to make boundaries consistent with existing development patterns and each district’s purpose. Other proposed amendments deal with revising lot size requirements for detached accessory apartments, allowing for minor deviations from requirements in accessory apartments, and improving and clarifying wording to the “table of use regulations.” The hearing will be held at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Town Hall.
