[ARCHIVED] Planning Zoning Commission Meeting Date Changed to Monday, Nov. 7, at 9:30 AM


The Planning and Zoning Commission (PZC) meeting that was scheduled for November 15, 2022, has been rescheduled to Monday, November 7, 2022, at 9:30 a.m. 

The PZC will discuss the R-B Low Density Residential District Mockup prepared by Sean S. Suder, ZoneCo, presented at the Town Council joint meeting on October 12, 2022. Numerous issues have been raised in conversations with the Town Council, the PZC, representatives of the architectural community and the public. These topics will be the focus of further discussion with the PZC at the November 7, 2022, meeting and will include the following:

Residential Buildings

Residential Lots and Lot Features:

Cubic Content Ratio (CCR) versus Floor Area Ratio (FAR)

Stormwater capture/runoff

Building location/setbacks

Building Height Definitions

Second story massing

FEMA elevations

Front garage orientation

Site walls and corrugated sheet piles

Façade articulation

Mechanical equipment location

Homogenous roof planes

Shade trees

The dialog will be supplemented with graphics to illustrate the current conditions and those suggested. It is anticipated that the outcome will be adjusted during the public engagement process with the Town of Palm Beach community tentatively scheduled to begin in January 2023. Decisions on the scope and content of revisions are ultimately that of the Town Council following the input of the PZC and extensive community engagement and input. Additionally, staff will present draft amendments related to Business Tax Receipt (BTR) language and non-conforming uses that are contained within the commercial zoning districts.  

The meeting agenda and back-up material will be available for the public closer to the meeting date.
