While there are many proposed text amendments considered by the Planning Board, a few have been particularly interesting:
- Allow chicken keeping on properties where the lot is greater than 10,000 square feet and there is a single-family detached dwelling, which is occupied as a residence. Residents can have up to 8 hens, and no roosters. This has been well followed in the local news.
- Require permits of businesses run out of a person's home.
- Allow granny pods on certain residential properties. Granny pods are portable, temporary housing units which are outfitted with medical monitoring devices. The proposed amendment would allow a second dwelling unit on a lot for the use of an elderly or disabled immediate family member of the principal dwelling unit.
