Planners recommend three amendments

by Audrey Thomasson

LANCASTER—Planning commission members last week passed three amended zoning ordinance articles to Lancaster supervisors with a recommendation for passage.

The amendments included a few additions and minor text and structure changes to make them consistent. There was no discussion or public comment during the related hearing.

“They are basically cosmetic changes,” said planning and land use director Don Gill.

Member Steve Sorensen made the motion to recommend Article 15 dealing with enforcement; David Chupp made the motion for Article 16 dealing with amendments; and Glenn Pinn Jr. made the motion for Article 17 dealing with administration and interpretation. The motions passed unanimously with the additional votes of vice chairman Tara Booth and Bob Smart. Members Tom Richardson and chairman Ty Brent did not attend the meeting.

In other business, the commission began discussion on Article 14 which outlines provisions for appeals.
