The Economic Development Committee will be meeting at 9 am on Thursday February 27th at 9 am in the Dennis Town Hall Annex Conference Room to review the progress to date on the Sesuit Harbor Zoning Proposal we have been working on for the last several months.
Since the last EDC Meeting I have met with the neighbors and property owners nearly weekly to discuss the issues important to both sides and to jointly craft a by-law that attempts to meet the needs of all involved. We are at a point now to bring this process back to the policy makers for review and start the public process of preparing this proposal for future consideration by Town Meeting. The latest proposal can be found above labeled Sesuit Harbor Zoning Draft 2-24-2014 Revisions. Below is the anticipated upcoming schedule that I had previously posted:
February 27th at 9 am, Economic Development Committee at the Town Hall Annex, EDC will receive the draft and initiate its review. Any members of other committees are encouraged to attend if they are available
March 20th at 9 am, Economic Development Committee at Town Hall Annex, continued review of the Sesuit Harbor Zoning Draft
April 17th at 9 am, Economic Development Committee at Town Hall Annex, continued review of the Sesuit Harbor Zoning Draft if necessary
May 19th – tentative joint Meeting of the Planning Board and Zoning By-law Study Committee to review Sesuit Harbor Zoning Draft (note any comments from Planning Board and Zoning By-law Study Committee members during the EDC review would be greatly appreciated to streamline this effort)
June, July and August public discussions to explain the Sesuit Harbor Zoning proposal and receive feedback (EDC Meetings and elsewhere as needed. Yacht Club forum perhaps?).
September 8th (approximately)– Planning Board asked to forward to Selectmen for Fall Town Meeting Warrant
October 6th or 20th Planning Board Public Hearing prior to Fall Town Meeting.
