Zoning amendments proposed in Lebanon
“They are fairly minor for the most part,” said zoning administrator Carmela Hennessy on Friday.
Two proposed zoning amendments would require developers seeking approval for projects including medical and recreational facilities, townhouse apartment complexes and cluster subdivisions to come before the planning board for a conceptual review.
Requiring the conceptual reviews would streamline the application process by identifying potential issues ahead of a site plan application, Hennessey said, and would allow city planners to view conceptual plans with an eye on the city’s master plan at the same time.
Lebanon defines accesory units as a separate dwelling area within, attached or near a single-family home.
In implementing the new ordinance this past year, city planners found it didn’t make sense when granting accessory units on large properties where the primary residence is usually set back a great distance from the front of the property, Hennessey said.
