Village of Chatham has zoning proposals
Aug 12, 2019 12:34 am
Emilia Teasdale reports for the Columbia Paper that while major zoning changes are being proposed in the Town of Chatham, the Village is just hoping to tweak a few zoning regulations. The proposals in the village would shrink the “residential suburban zones” and change the historic overlay district, and also add definitions for fast food restaurants, family dining, group homes, health/fitness centers, and other types of businesses. Mayor John Howe said at a July 30 meeting that a village committee had presented these changes to the board in 2017, but town officials got busy with other issues, and have not gotten to the zoning changes until now. The village hopes to hold a public hearing on the proposals by early September, and for now the definitions and the zoning map are on the village website at villageofchatham.com.
