Starting in 2007, town Council made flexible changes to the Land Management Ordinance (LMO) to encourage redevelopment that will continue to make our island a viable, vibrant community.
Here are some examples of these changes:
Redevelopment Floating Zone
This amendment created a process for an applicant to go through to redevelop an existing nonconforming site (a legally established site but no longer because of LMO changes) without the need for full compliance with LMO. In addition to grandfathering nonconforming density, it also provides a great deal of fexibility in site design with relief from a number of standards such as bufers, impervious coverage and parking.
