Dayton Planning Board April 15, 2014 Members Present: Rand Clark, Dan Plourde, Valerie Cole (Alt) Town Employees Present: Jim Roberts (CEO) Administrative: The minutes from March 18, 2014 were read and approved. The Board received notice that Dayton Sand and Gravel intends to file an application for renewal of its existing air emissions license with the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, pursuant to Chapter 115. No notice taken. The Secretary submitted a notice of resignation. She intends to finish by the end of June. Old Business: REVIEW OF ZONING ORDINANCE: Board members reviewed Article 5, District Regulations, of the zoning ordinance. Jim Roberts clarified the following points: • The term "mixed use" indicates areas that have houses. Commercial indicates areas without houses. • Rural fields and rural forests have similar requirements. In rural fields, the intent is to keep houses toward the rear of a subdivision to preserve the view of fields from the road. In rural forests the intent is to keep houses closer to the road to preserve the forests in the backland. • Critical rural has a much higher land requirement than rural fields: five acres as opposed to three acres. This is to help preserve natural recourses. • In the shoreland overlay district, the intent is to preserve natural resources. • Dimensional Requirements (Section 5.2): the capital letters in parentheses refer to the notes on page 42. • Dayton has some areas that have been designated as wildlife and water fowl habitat by Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. • Jim indicated that he plans to print future versions of the Table of Land Uses in landscape format instead of portrait, to make it easier to read. New Business: None discussed. The meeting adjourned at 7:45 PM. The next meeting will be Tuesday, May 20, 2014 at 7:00 PM. __________________________________________________Date:_____________________ Valerie J.
