    • Zoning Petition – Monestime, et. al. Zoning Petition
      • Informal discussion of a Zoning Petition by Michael Monestime, et al. to create new footnotes in the Table of Permitted Uses in Section 4.30 for Outdoor Retail or Consumer Service Establishment, not otherwise defined and Outdoor Entertainment and Recreation Facility in the Business B, B-1 and B-2 column which read, “For the Central Square Overlay see section 20.304.5 (5)” and “For the Central Square Overlay see section 20.304.5 (6)”; and by amending Section 20.304.5 of the Central Square Overlay District to allow Outdoor Retail or Consumer Service Establishment, not otherwise defined by Special Permit from the Planning Board, with associated approval criteria, and to permit Outdoor Entertainment and Recreation Facility as-of-right within the Business B District of the Central Square Overlay District.

        The Central Square Advisory Committee has no formal advisory role in the review of zoning petitions and will therefore not take any formal action or issue any opinions on behalf of the committee. The City Council has referred this Zoning Petition to the Ordinance Committee for an April 13th hearing and to the Planning Board for an April 25th hearing.
