2017 Master Plan Update
The Planning Board will hold a Hearing on April 18, 2017, 7 PM at the Town Hall to receive public comments on the following updated Master Plan Chapters:
Planning Board Articles Approved at 2017 Town Meeting
The Planning Board proposed 3 Zoning Amendments for consideration at the 2017 Town meeting:
- Dimensional Requirements: Based on feedback the Board has received, these amendments aim to clarify the location of dimensional requirements in the Zoning Ordinance. No changes are proposed to the actual requirements themselves.
- Telecommunications Facilities: Amateur radio is a hobby whose antenna support structures are protected under federal law (47 CFR 97.15(e)) as well as state law and as such their height limits are unenforceable. This amendment proposes to bring Litchfield's Amateur Radio Antenna requirements in line with State and Federal protections.
Public input was received on each at a hearing conducted on December 6, 2016.
