The committee continued the review of the document. Changes (indicated in italics) to the document and discussion included:

Article IV Specific Use Standards

·       Page 4.1, Section 4.2, Accessory dwelling, (1) Limited only to “owner” or does this include family?

·       Page 4.9 Section 4.13 Home Business (3) “…with a residential use, are prohibited.”

·       Home business: “the sale of goods or services produced on the premises”, is this too limiting?

·       Page 4.10 Fill in sections missing in Table 4.3.

·       Page 6.6 Line 5, delete “will, however.” (typo)
