Overview: The Town Council held a public hearing on November 18, 20201 to discuss refinements to the Blue Hill Form-Based Code that would encourage townhome projects. Continued discussion and possible action was scheduled for December 9. Staff is now recommending that Council postpone further discussion to February 24, 2021, due to the large number of agenda items scheduled for the December 9 Council Meeting.


Recommendation(s):
That the Council adopt the resolution continuing discussion on the proposed text amendment for townhome standards in the Blue Hill District to February 24, 2021.

Additional Information:
* During a study of Building Massing standards for Blue Hill, the consultant advised that townhome projects in the Blue Hill District are likely to be unfeasible because of a requirement that projects include commercial space. The proposed text amendment is intended to address this issue.
* On November 18, 2020, Council moved to close the public hearing, receive additional public comment for 24 hours following the conclusion of the hearing, and consider action at the December 9, 2020 meeting.
