Land Use Board Discussion Items (action may or may not be taken)

Ordinance 16-27: An Ordinance Amending Chapter 330-184. B - Adding an Additional Permitted Use for the Town Center and C-2 Zone

Chairperson Theobald opened the discussion on proposed Ordinance #16-27. Ms. Caldwell explained the land use board is asked to review the consistency of the proposed ordinance to the master plan and report approval and any suggestions back to the governing body. Ms. Caldwell adds Ordinance#16-27 is proposing adding permitted uses of brew pubs, craft breweries, distilleries and wineries in the town center area, noted Item KK in the ordinance. Ms. Caldwell states she does not see any inconsistencies in the master plan for the town center for these uses which have become more popular in New Jersey and are great for tourism.

Chairperson Theobald suggested recommending the ordinance to also include the AET zone and asks Ms. Caldwell if it is consistent with the master plan. Ms. Caldwell states it is consistent for tourism and can be viewed as a destination spot and members discuss about others in Warwick, Pine Island and Sparta. Ms. Caldwell explains that the reason the ordinance is for town center is the need for availability of public water for these uses but it is not impossible to run from a property with a well.

Motion: Ms. Cocula made a motion to approve Ordinance #16-27 to be recommended to the governing body and recommends Ordinance to include the Zone AET.

Mr. Tadrick seconded motion as amended. ROLL CALL: SHORTWAY: Y, WEXLER: Y, MURPHY: Y, THEOBALD: Y, TADRICK: Y, COCULA: Y, PALADINI: Y, MCPEEK: Y, WHITAKER: Y. Motion carried.
