1. Approval of Minutes:
Public Hearing and Regular Meeting Minutes of September 27, 2017: On the motion of Ms. Atamian and the second of Mr. Ogonek, the Commission voted by majority to accept the minutes; Mr. Lecher abstained as he was not present at the meeting.
2. Application #2017-22Z -101 Marchant Road (Assessor’s Map and Lot No. 12 – 79), New Pond Farm Foundation. In accordance with Section 5.2 of the Redding Zoning Regulations, request for a Site Plan Amendment to install free-standing 12’ x 20’ storage shed to be placed behind learning center. For receipt/scheduling of public hearing.
The Commission briefly reviewed the application. The Chairman noted that, since New Pond Farm operates under a Special Use Permit, a Site Plan Amendment is required for any new structure; a public hearing must also be held for any new structure.
On the motion of Ms. Atamian and the second of Mr. Ogonek, the commission voted unanimously to accept the application and set the public hearing date for November 8, 2017.
The Chairman mentioned that he is unclear regarding where structures are allowed on the New Pond Farm property as there is a conservation easement over a large portion of the property. He asked Ms. Pardee if she could clarify this issue for the commission at the time of the hearing.
The Chairman noted that he and Ms. Pardee had attended a CAZEO (Connecticut Association of Zoning Enforcement Officers) meeting in early October where “granny pods” were discussed.
