The purpose of the moratorium is to review and if needed, propose revisions to the Town's Subdivision and Site Plan Review laws to help encourage energy efficiency, reduction in greenhouse gasses, water conservation, and development of on-site renewable energy.
The Town Board has scheduled an Information Session on the proposed moratorium for Monday March 6th at 7:30 pm at the Caroline Town Hall. There will be a presentation explaining the proposed moratorium, an opportunity for Questions/Answers and also an opportunity to express comments.
At any time you can also send your questions or comments to the Town Clerk firstname.lastname@example.org and she will send them to the Town Board.
Following the public information session, the Board will determine if major or minor revisions are needed to the proposed moratorium. If major revisions are needed, we'll re-write it, and hold another public information session to get additional feedback. If only minor revisions are needed, we'll tweak it and then hold a Public Hearing (a legally required, more formal proceeding, where people give comments but there is no discussion). After the public hearing, the Board may vote whether to enact the Moratorium or not. Throughout the process, we will keep you posted about upcoming meetings and the status of the proposed moratorium.
