Meeting opened at 6:00 pm. The group addressed the following agenda items:

Meeting Minutesof July 10 – approved.

Impervious cover– The group had a lengthy discussion of last year’s proposed amendment and proposed ideas for alternate language to clarify and hopefully enhance the impervious cover provision and its definition.  Much of the conversation focused on whether or not – and how -the two issues of impervious cover and stormwater management should or can be addressed within the same provision. The consensus was they should be kept separate.  Additional comments related to the existing phrasing in the impervious cover definition “…unless designed to effectively absorb or filter water.” As no language was settled upon, members will return to the matter at the next meeting.

Sign ordinance – The committee reviewed the proposed changes presented by Carol Ogilvie and discussed further revisions. Ms. Ogilvie will revise for the next meeting.

Solar – Tabled until the following meeting.

The next meeting of the ORC is Tuesday, July 23, at 5:30 pm. Following that, the committee will meet Tuesday, August 6, at 5:30 pm.

Meeting adjourned at 7:52 pm.
