Discussion of updating check lists for different procedures
There was further discussion about the checklists for PUDs, Conditional Use Procedures, Site Plan Reviews, Variance Reviews, and Zoning Amendment Procedures. Linda will incorporate the changes discussed, and remove the verbiage from the beginning of each checklist and then insert the checklists only into the ordinance for all to review.
There was further discussion about creating two checklists for variances – one for minor changes and one for major changes. Shannon Vogele and Dick Martin will get together to make up a first draft.
