Post #425: CORRECTION: Public meetings this week regarding MAC zoning.

Posted on October 21, 2019

CORRECTION:  Tonight’s Town Council work session is in the Community Center, not in Town Hall as I stated previously.


There appear to be two public meetings this week relevant to MAC zoning.


Monday, 10/21/2019, at 8:00 PM in Town Hall, Town Council will hear a petition to appeal final approval of the Marco Polo/Vienna Market project.  At issue is white siding covering the backs of the (otherwise) brick buildings.  MAC statute “design criteria” appear to require that the front and back of a building match, when the back is visible to the public.  A citizen filed a petition asking the Town to enforce that and so require that the backs be covered in brick, not siding.

Because this is a public hearing, I believe that citizens may speak for up to three minutes.

The relevant materials can be found here:

The Town broadcasts Town Council meetings on Cox channel 27, Verizon FIOS channel 38, and streaming at

Tuesday, 10/22/2019, at 7:30 PM in Town Hall, Town Council will hold a work session to discuss draft amendments the Town’s MAC zoning and other commercial zoning. 

Work session materials can be found here, including statements from each of the Town Council members.

The Town does not broadcast work sessions, but audio recordings are available after-the-fact in the “archives” section of this web page:
