Transcript

  • 1. Town of Dennis Chapter 40R Zoning
  • 2. What is Chapter 40R?
    • Chapter 40R is special legislation to promote new approaches to housing development
    • It provides an incentive laden alternative to Chapter 40B projects
    • Promotes by-right zoning for housing creation with financial support for infrastructure and schools
  • 3. Why Chapter 40R for Dennis?
    • The Dennis Affordable Housing By-law promotes equivalent housing opportunities but by Special Permit rather than by-right
    • Provides financial rewards for appropriate projects the Town may have approved anyway
    • If the site is right, create appropriate zoning with all design standards set up front rather than in Special Permit process.
  • 4. Proposal
    • Rezone a site which represents a “conflicting land use” to promote a more appropriate future for the site
    • Promote “down-sized” housing close to a village center
    • Assist in relocating grandfathered use to a more appropriate location
  • 5. The Site Northern Paving property in Dennisport which is adjacent to a high density housing project and sensitive wetlands .
