DWELLING, ONE UNIT WITH ACCESSORY APARTMENT

A second zoning amendment the Planning Board will be discussing tonight deals with allowing for “in-law” apartments. In 1999 the Planning Board brought to Town Meeting amendments to definitions. One definition added was the creation of a term “DWELLING, ONE UNIT WITH ACCESSORY APARTMENT” however, this particular use was never added to the use table.

The Planning Board is considering adding this to the use table and will also be discussing the definition, which is a bit cumbersome at the moment.

Amend Section 5 Definitions by editing  the Definition of DWELLING, ONE UNIT WITH ACCESSORY APARTMENT (Deletions Strikethrough, Additions Bold Italic) as follows:

DWELLING, ONE UNIT WITH ACCESSORY APARTMENT An owner-occupied building containing two (2) dwelling units, one (1) of which shall be an accessory apartment with a net floor living area not to exceed six hundred (600) square feet, which includes not more than one bedroom, a kitchen, living room and bath. For the purpose of this definition, either one unit shall be owner occupied on a year-round basis, except for bona fide temporary absences during which the owner occupied unit shall is not be rented. The apartment created by this definition shall be restricted to use by the property owner’s immediate family, including in-laws (mother, father, brother, sister), and/or a health care professional providing a service to the above family.

Amend Section 2.2.2.2 Residential Uses by adding a new subsection 2.2.2.2.k DWELLING, ONE UNIT WITH ACCESSORY APARTMENT.
