PROPOSED ZONING ISSUES
Councilmember Shulman stated that the Zoning Ordinance Rewrite Committee would like to consider using only developable land in figuring land density. Mr. Shulman stated that extreme slopes, the flood way or flood plain, and other types of non developable land would not be counted as total acreage in figuring land density. Mr. Shulman stated that a definition would have to be given to developable land. Mr. Shulman stated that this would help reduce density.
Mayor Eisenberg stated that Council should not play games, if the Village wants to reduce density it should simply reduce density.
Councilmember Montgomery stated that she agreed with Mayor Eisenberg, perhaps the formula for density could change.
