2019 Zoning Ordinance Revisions
At its October 4, 2018 work session, the Planning Board invites input and discussion regarding proposed amendments to the Town of Bow Zoning Ordinance. We ask each Board,Commission, and department to attend and / or submit recommendations for zoning amendments. The general public is also welcome to attend and to submit proposals. Recommended amendments can be in the form of a marked up ordinance, a general
description of the change, or a more formal draft. The Board is open to changes of substance as well as housekeeping amendments.
The purpose of the October 4th meeting is to identify the range of amendments likely to be considered. Between October 2018 and January 2019, the Board will review selected amendments and interested persons are welcome to participate throughout the process.
The procedure for the meeting will be
a) to hear the proposals,
b) to determine whether the Planning Board will sponsor each amendment, and
c) to assign someone to draft each proposal.
If the Planning Board decides not to sponsor a particular amendment, the sponsor could still develop an RSA 675:4 petition to put the amendment on the March 12, 2019 Town Meeting ballot. Valid petitions must be submitted in correct warrant article form to the Board of Selectmen between November 12 and December 12, 2018, inclusive. The Planning Board plans to begin review of its sponsored amendments by November 2018. All amendments must be drafted and posted for public inspection by mid-January to be considered at the March 12, 2019 Town Meeting.
