Well work news is...
I am temporarily working as City Clerk.
Small town clerking is very interesting because you get to be in the middle of everything. Including Planning.
The other issue is that "It has been done this way.." Comes into play all the time.
So I have an individual come in for a rezoning and I am told....
The Planning board won't go for that application. So you need to call them and have a meeting so that they can tell him they won't do that.
Then if they decide that it is ok with them then we can do notifications and let the neighbors know.
My response was. No, our regulations already tell him he can't do that without rezoning and they can choose to rezone or not but I am not holding three different meetings for one application. If they decide that I have not provided them enough information then they can table it and come back in a month. If anyone has questions about that then I will direct them to the statues.
I think it is going to be really fun wading through all the...But we have done it this ways!
