PUBLIC HEARING ON PROPOSED BR CODE CHANGES FOR DOWNTOWN DEVELOPMENT SET FOR FEBRUARY 12, 2019

Friends – On motion by BR Councilman Jim Steele with a second by Council Member Virginia Powell,  Council set a public hearing for 6:00 P.M. February 12, 2019 Town council meeting for Staff Recommended and Planning Board approved code changes to eliminate density limits for downtown residential units, significantly reduce required green space, significantly increase allowable building heights and authorize measurement of building heights from secondary streets instead of from major streets. Council member Sue Sweeting unsuccessfully urged Council to table these recommendations. The BRCA Development Evaluation Committee is analyzing these recommendations and plans to make a presentation at the public hearing, We urge everyone to attend this important public hearing and to comment on these proposed changes.

Thanks so much,

 

George
