Town Council meets at 7 p.m. Monday. Council plans to hold public hearings on:

  • A proposed ordinance amendment to the town code pertaining to parking restrictions in the gazebo area lot. If approved spaces marked by green stripes shall be restricted between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. unless otherwise approved by the town manager. Also an ordinance, if approved, would prohibit parking in any location where the curb is marked with yellow paint.

  • A request from AVG Holdings LLC to revise proffers associated with a rezoning application for several parcels conditionally rezoned in 1991 from residential to commercial. If approved the changes would allow two existing structures at 602 and 604 Radham St. to be used for single-family residential purposes until converted for commercial uses. The current proffer restricts all uses other than professional offices, barber and beauty shops, banks and financial institutions, retail and personal services. The revised proffers also include minor changes in the details of the 15-foot wide landscape strip. The property is currently in the commercial district and adjacent to the downtown business land use designation of the town plan although shown for future multifamily residential (medium density) use.

Council will hold a work session following the regular meeting to discuss:

  • A resolution to renew the town's involvement in a deer management program
