Chairman Vosberg asked Town Board chairman Mayer if the Planning Commission needed to pursue development of a Land Use ordinance with the newly adopted Conditional Use Zoning ordinance in place. Chairman Mayer said the Planning Commission can suspend the process at this time, but noted it could be reinstated at any time.

 

Considering Farmland Preservation plan; the Technical Advisory & Cluster meetings are progressing very slowly and no township in the county has had their map approved yet. However, the Planning Commission is confident with how they have Monroe Township's map marked up, and will continue to attend upcoming meetings to remain current. Since there has been slow progress at the county level, the Planning Commission has decided not to continue monthly meetings until the need arises.
