Proponents and opponents of a proposal to reduce the number of parking spaces required for age-targeted housing in the Town of Bel Air will have the opportunity to voice their concern and opinions Monday night.
During Monday’s Board of Town Commissioner’s meeting, which begins at 7:30 p.m. in Town Hall, the commissioners will hold a public hearing on an amendment to the town’s existing development regulations, which would reduce the number of parking spaces requires for “55 and Over Housing” from 2.5 spaces per unit, to 2 spaces per unit.
According to the ordinance:
“The Bel Air Planning Commission recommended amending the Bel Air Development Regulations from 2.5 to 2 parking spaces per unit for 55 and Over Housing based on findings of an independent analysis showing that both local and national standards and needs support the reduced parking requirement.”
Also during its Monday night session, the town commissioners are expected to appointment members to the Historic Preservation and Planning Commissions.
