ACTIONS 1. The Planning Commission shall not consider rezoning, except as called for in this plan or to correct spot zones or split lots. 2. The Town should apply for renewal of the Growth/New Town Center with the State as necessary over the term of this plan. 3. Within three years of adoption of this plan, fluvial erosion hazard standards in the Development Review Regulations should be updated to reflect the Vermont River Corridor Maps. Development shall continue to be prohibited in the floodplain and redevelopment, only allowed if it addresses Development Regulation requirements for floodproofing. 4. The AMU zoning should be revisited within six years of adoption of this plan. The remainder of the rural lands in this neighborhood that are not precluded from development by floodplains should be considered for AMU zoning. 5. The zoning on East Lakeshore Drive and similar areas should be examined within two years of adoption of this plan, to address view preservation as rebuilds along the Shoreline continue. 6. The zoning for Clay Point should be re-evaluated within two years of adoption of this plan, to determine what zoning would best maintain the character of the area and the planned rural land use. 7. The GD4 zoning at Exit 17 should be evaluated within five years of the adoption of this plan to consider opportunities for development that would not negatively impact economic growth opportunities for this neighborhood over the long-term. 8. Within seven years of adoption of this plan, the zoning for Marble Island should be reevaluated to determine if better zoning could be created that would maintain the rural character but maintain residential densities and setbacks. 9. Within five years of adoption of this plan, the zoning of the Northeast Quadrant should be reviewed for possible incorporation of fixed-area-based density cluster developments and more opportunities for recreational uses and onthe-farm enterprises and event facilities. 10. During the term of this plan, grants to evaluate public transportation options for the Bay should be explored, to see if there is a cost-effective service that could provide reasonable service time to Burlington. 11. In evaluating the rural character of a neighborhood, the Open Space Plan should be looked to for guidance. 12. Within a year of adoption of this plan, the Development Regulations should be revised to include a solar screening bylaw, to ensure that similar screening standards are applied to solar as to commercial development.
