INFORMATION: At the September 17, 2019 Board of Aldermen meeting, during the deliberation for the Kentfield conditional use permit, there was a request to have a discussion regarding the connector roads policy.  A preliminary draft ordinance that would provide flexibility has been prepared for the Council to review and discuss (Attachment B).  Modifications to other sections of the Land Use Ordinance, such as Section 15-214 and/or Section 15-221 may also be needed.  Article XIV, Streets and Sidewalks (Attachment C) and the Connector Road Policy (Attachment D), have been provided for information. 

 

Subject to Council direction, staff can bring back the preliminary draft ordinance, or a revised version of the ordinance, at a future meeting to request a public hearing and to refer to the Planning Board and to Orange County. 

 

FISCAL & STAFF IMPACT: There is no fiscal impact associated with the discussion of this item.  Staff time and advertisements costs related to the review of text amendments are dependent on the outcome of the Council’s discussion.  

 

RECOMMENDATION:r Staff recommends that the Council discuss the connector road policy and possible language in the preliminary draft ordinance and provide direction for next steps.
