Greenwich Time, which does a decent job covering our P&Z Commission’s frolics, has an editorial today on the subject (link below). There are some serious changes to our FAR regs on the horizon and the P&Z, if past history is a guide, intends to implement them as soon as the dust settles. One, for instance, would deduct from a lot’s FAR calculations any land underwater – a pond, for instance. So let’s say you own six acres in the Back Country, two acres of which are high and dry, the rest of which is a pond. If the pond doesn’t count, you will be restricted to a house size smaller than that allowed in the one acre zone. If the point of FAR was/is to limit houses to an “appropriate” size,then how does this result accomplish that goal? The P&Z won’t (can’t) say – but they’re going to do it nonetheless. Stop them before they sqeeze again.
