TOWN OF LYNDON
NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

Notice is hereby given to the residents of the Town of Lyndon, VT that the Lyndon Selectboard will hold a public hearing in the Lyndon Municipal Building, Conference Room on Tuesday, September 5th, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. This hearing will be held for public review of and comment on the Zoning By-laws pursuant to Title 24 VSA, Chapter 117.

4.4.3 Lot coverage, minimum lot size, and front, side and rear yard requirements that apply to entire districts fail by their nature to account for all of the different conditions that exist within each district. Such requirements should not be conclusive and binding land use requirements subject to the inflexible requirements of Section 4469 of the Act. Therefore, any proposed Development in a particular zoning district that fails to satisfy lot coverage, minimum lot size, or front, side or rear yard requirements in that district may be allowed as a Conditional Use in that district, if the applicant affirmatively establishes that (a) the conditions established in Sections 4.4.5.1 through 4.4.5.6 inclusive are satisfied, (b) the degree to which the proposed Development fails to meet such requirements is no greater than the degree to which properties in the immediate vicinity also fail (if at all) to meet such requirements, and (c) the proposed Development is a Permitted Use or a Conditional Use in that district. The maximum amount of lot coverage that may be considered under conditional use provisions is 125% of the maximum listed by district in the chart depicting "Town of Lyndon Minimum Requirements for Development". For example, if a maximum lot coverage in a particular district is 20%, the Development Review Board may approve lot coverage of over 20%, up to a maximum of 25%, if the proposal satisfies conditional use criteria.

2) 13.14 Issuance of Permits by the Administrative Officer. A copy of all permits issued by the Administrative Officer under his/her authority will be sent to owners of adjacent property within one working day of issuance. The purpose of this provision is to advise adjacent property owners of actions taken in the event the adjacent owner would desire to appeal the decision. This provision does not apply to permits that have been issued under the authority of the DRB after warning and hearing.

Copies of the proposed amendments to the Lyndon Zoning By-laws may be obtained at the Lyndon Municipal Building located at 119 Park Avenue.
