Planning Commission to meet Aug. 15

The Planning Commission will come back to work on Aug. 15 after its summer vacation, for what looks to be a full meeting. Discussion begins at 6:30 p.m., with public hearings to start at 7:30 p.m. (These times and dates will be changing in the future. Here’s why.)

Items to be discussed are:

  • An amendment to zoning and subdivision ordinances to define data centers, their use and the types of parking standards they should have. (Here’s background from the board.)
  • A request for a Conditional Use Permit to allow automobile repair and motor vehicle rental uses on property located on the south side of Perchwood Drive, east of Tyler Von Way, within the Falmouth Election District.
  • Comprehensive Plan Compliance Review for the extension of water and sewer outside of the Urban Services Area to serve up to 158 lots on Assessor’s Parcel 36-67A, zoned A-1, Agricultural, located on the north side of Truslow Road, approximately 1,900 feet west of Berea Church Road within the Hartwood Election District.

Here’s the full agenda.
