Zoning amendments to be reviewed

The Union Bridge Planning and Zoning Commission will hold a special meeting tonight to review a draft of proposed amendments to the town's zoning ordinance.

The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. in the Town Hall on Locust Street.

The changes are aimed at providing construction diversity in new subdivisions, such as the 400-plus-unit community being planned for the 171-acre Phillips property on Route 75.

"This gives them [developers] more flexibility where they can do little variations on the types of buildings and things," said Town Clerk-Treasurer Kathleen D. Kreimer. "For instance, Dr. [G. Jackson] Phillips wants to lay his development out in little villages. This way, they don't have to lay it out in straight streets."

If amended as proposed, the ordinance also would allow single-family homes in the same subdivision as townhouses, smaller lot sizes and the elimination of easements, which will increase the amount of open space.

Members of the Planning and Zoning Commission plan to recommend the amended ordinance to the Town Council on Monday.
