  4. Citizens To Be Heard
  5. Yoga and other similar uses as Permitted Use in B-2 and B-3 commercial zoning Mike Harvey 
    (Determined that no ordinance amendment is necessary to allow yoga classes, aerobic classes, and karate classes in the B-3 zone. Staff have previously interpreted the allowance of "personal services" in the B-3 zone to also include uses such as yoga classes, etc., and the Planning Board concurred with this approach.)
  6. Rezoning Request for portion of Block 41, 4.03 acres, oceanfront, from B-3 (Commercial) to RMH- (Residential-Motel/Hotel). Located between Daisywood Subdivision and Boardwalk RV Park -- Randy Campbell 
    (Discussed a request to rezone 4 acres on the oceanfront near Janell Lane from B-3 to RMH. Because the applicant intends to construct multi-family units on the site, the Planning Board suggested that the applicant request a rezoning to RMF instead, and the applicant consented to this change. The Planning Board suggested this in part because of a desire to eliminate the mixed nature of RMH zoning in the future. The Planning Board did not make a final recommendation, but will consider making a final recommendation at their February Planning Board meeting)
  7. Comments from Members 
    (Expressed concern about the use of fireworks and the lack of enforcement of state laws prohibiting most fireworks) 
    (Expressed their desire to eliminate automobile sales as a permitted use in the B-3 zone. Directed staff to research the issue and present information for the Planning Board to act at their February meeting.)
  8. Recess / Adjourn
