Proposed revisions on China agenda

CHINA — With no applications on their agenda for Tuesday, Planning Board members intend to talk about proposed revisions to local ordinances. Topics include the shoreland septic system compliance program and the home occupations and parking sections of China’s land use ordinance.

The June town ballot is slated to include a local question, presented by petition, asking if voters will repeal the septic system compliance program. Planning Board members intend to present a revised program as an alternative to repeal.

The board submitted proposed changes in regulations governing home occupations to selectmen last fall. Selectmen replied with comments for Planning Board consideration.

Parking regulations relate to commercial uses of property.

The board meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Town Office meeting room.

China’s Comprehensive Plan Implementation Committee is scheduled to meet at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in the same place.
