Resilience Planning & Design

Liz presented two future land use maps to the Board. Suggested edits were discussed. The Board also reviewed the draft Land Use chapter.  Form based code was briefly discussed.  Liz will forward information regarding it.

Joanna informed the Board that Resilience was contacted regarding them assisting with the update to the Capital Improvement Program. Resilience does not typically help with CIP’s unless they are involved with the Master Plan.  Littleton is an excellent fit.  Liz and Steve will forward the process to Joanna.

On December 17th, Liz will present a draft Implementation Chapter as well as an entire draft of the Master Plan.

            **Potential Zoning Ordinance Amendment---

The NH Office of Strategic Initiatives has recommended the update of the Littleton Flood Plain Development Ordinance.  The proposed update does not change the current regulations.  The proposed version was created by OSI to more clearly identify the regulations so that they are more understandable.

The Board discussed adding the above suggested amendment to the warrant. If the amendment does not pass, the current Flood Plain Development Ordinance will remain in place.

Vice Chair Menzies made a motion to add this amendment to the warrant.  Val seconded the motion. The motion passed by all.

The Board will meet again on December 3, 2019 for another Lot Line Adjustment application. 

At 7:00, Vice Chair Menzies made a motion to adjourn.  Milton seconded the motion. The motion passed.
