    (Welcomed Pam Minnick to the Planning Board)
  3. Report from Town Manager – Frank A. Rush
  4. Report from Planning & Inspections Director – Carol Angus
    1. LUP Update
    2. Building Permits
  5. Sunset Harbor, Lot 5, Final Plat – Carol Angus 
    (Recommended approval of the final plat for Sunset Harbor, Building 5, contingent upon the issuance of the Certificate of Occupancy for the building or the posting of a letter of credit for remaining improvements (none anticipated; building is complete and awaiting final inspection). The Planning Board determined that this plat does not need to go to Map Review Committee, and recommended forwarding to the Board of Commissioners for the December 10 meeting. Unanimous)
  6. Ad Hoc Committee Reports:
    1. Proposed Dunes & Vegetation Ordinance Revisions – Ed Dowling 
      (Recommended approval of the revisions to the Dunes and Vegetation Ordinance as proposed by the Planning Board subcommittee. This item will appear on the Board's December 10 agenda. A public hearing will be scheduled. Unanimous)
    2. Exterior Wall Faces of Commercial Buildings – Pat Patteson 
      (Recommended approval of a revision to Section 19-74.1 of the zoning ordinance to clarify building facades, roof lines, etc. The ordinance would essentially allow certain limited decorative features to rise 4 feet above the roof line, and clarify that porches can be used to meet the building offset requirement. Unanimous)
    3. Recording of Final Plats Within 60-days of Approval – Frank Erwin 
      (Concurred with a change in administrative policy to require that final plats be recorded immediately after action by the Town Board. Planning staff will be responsible for seeing that final plats are recorded. Consensus)
    4. Update of Planning Board Policies and Procedures – Ann Erikson 
      (Anne Erikson distributed draft policies and procedures for the Planning Board to review and discuss at an upcoming meeting.)
  7. Shopping Center Standards – Mike Harvey
    (Had further discussion about an amendment to the zoning ordinance regarding large commercial shopping centers (i.e., the 8000 sf SUP issue). The Planning Board agreed on one of two options and will now refine the specific standards proposed by Michael Harvey. A subcommittee consisting of Pam Minnick, Frank Erwin, and Pat Patteson will work with Michael Harvey and Carol Angus, and present their recommendations back to the Planning Board. Consensus)
