Agendas for the upcoming Planning and Zoning Commission Workshops have yet to be posted, however, below is the list of the upcoming workshops.
These are open to the public and we greatly encourage all to come and participate. It is our understanding that Planning and Zoning are preparing to have their final draft Now is the time for the Reatlor® voice to be strong.
All workshops are held in the Sussex County Council Chambers and are broadcast live. To follow the development of the Comprehensive Plan you can click on the link below. A link to the live broadcast site is provided below the Comp. Plan link. You can listen to any, and all, previous workshops as they are archived on the site listed below.
SCAOR Public Policy Committee (PPC) had submitted their approved talking points to SCAOR Executive Board, on July 13th, 2017, and received their final approval. Talking points should be presented in the upcoming Public Workshops. Stay tuned to see the position of SCAOR and the developing Sussex County Comprehensive Plan.
During this time Sussex County Council heard and approved a proposal to amend the sign ordinance related to on-premise signs and setbacks from an existing billboard (ORDINANCE NO. 2509). This is a friendly amendment to allow business/property owners to place signs on their property that were previously not permitted under the ordinance that was approved in October 2016. To view that change please click the link below.
Two changes to the PPC have occurred since the last SCAORcard. It was determined that member services would be enhanced to have a committee solely dedicated to RPAC education and fundraising and to improve the existing Park Avenue Expansion Task Force into a Park Avenue Expansion PAG. New members were added to this PAG to further follow the developments of this project.
Your SCAOR PPC continues to work with our DAR GAD, Maria Evans, as we continue to support DAR in ensuring the 1st Time Home Buyer exemption is reviewed as it relates to the new RTT increases.
