LEGAL NOTICE TOWN OF ATHOL BOARD OF PLANNING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT In accordance with MGL, Chapter 40A and the Athol Town Charter, the Board of Planning and Community Development (BPCD) will hold a public hearing on Wednesday October 2, 2019 @ 7:15 pm in Room #21 (2nd floor) of the Athol Town Hall located at 584 Main St., Athol MA. The purpose of this public hearing is to review three (3) zoning warrant articles to amend the Athol Zoning Bylaw. The first two articles pertain to the addition of new home occupation zoning uses and additional standards. The first article would amend Article III, Section 3.4, Home Occupations, by adding “Light Service”, “General Repairs”, “Home-based Internet Business”, and “Computer/Software Repair” to the list of home occupation uses under Section 3.4.2 and also amend the Athol Zoning Bylaws Article II, Section 2.3, Use Regulation Schedule, by changing, under the category of COMMERCIAL USES, the sub-category Home occupation, the use for Residence C (RC) to “Y” from “Y21” reflecting that the “Light Service”, “General Repairs” uses would be allowed only by Special Permit from the Zoning Board of Appeals in the RC zoning district. The second article would amend Section 3.4 by adding two additional home occupation use standards to ensure that adequate off-street parking is available and that the home occupation use is not detrimental to a residential or rural neighborhood, and the existing character of the neighborhood is preserved. The third article involves related amendments to the Athol Zoning Bylaws, Article III, Section 3.27, Adaptive Overlay District. The first set of amendments would amend Article III, Section 3.27, Adaptive Overlay District, by adding “Residential – Two-Family”, “Residential – Multi-Family up to Four Units”, and “Residential – Multi-Family over Four Units” to the list of Appropriate Uses under Section 3.27.4. The second set of amendents would amend Sectin 3.27.5, Standards, by adding a new sub-section d. that would allow for additional residential development at a density beyond what is required in the existing RB and RC zoning districts for the first unit with 4,000 sq ft. required for each additional unit. Said zoning bylaw changes are available for review at the Town Clerk’s Office in Room 10 located in The Athol Town Hall.
