Are you in favor of the adoption of Amendment No. 3 as proposed by the Planning Board for the Hampton Zoning Ordinance as follows?
Amend Article I – General, Section 1.6 to replace the current definitions of “Parking Area” and “Parking Lot” with one consolidated definition titled “Parking Lot”, to include legally designated areas of a public street within the definition of “Parking Space”, and to make minor changes to the definition of “Stacked Parking” for consistency purposes.
Amend Article III – Use Regulations, Section 3.26a to remove “and/or Parking Areas” for consistency purposes.
Amend Article VI – Parking, Section 6.4 (Parking Lots and/or Parking Areas) to remove “and/or Parking Area(s)” for consistency purposes, and to clarify the parking lot requirement under 6.4.6.
What It Means: The current definitions of “Parking Lot” and “Parking Area” have resulted in confusion, and are proposed to be replaced with one revised definition of “Parking Lot.” Additionally, an existing reference to “legally-designated” areas of a public street will be moved to the “Parking Space” definition, and minor consistency changes to the definition of “Stacked Parking” are proposed. All references to Parking Area(s) have been removed from the Zoning Ordinance for consistency purposes, and outdated language in Article IV – Parking has been clarified.
Those In Favor Say: This is a “house keeping” Warrant Article, designed to add clarity to the references to places to park in the ordinances.
Those against say: No one spoke against this Article at the Deliberative Session.
Fiscal Impact: No tax impact.
